I needed a simpler way to sand some small wood parts and this is what I came up with. Its a 3/8 drill with a 5 inch sanding disk attached. The table is made from 2×4 screwed to the base so the sanding disk can be replaced when needed.

Amazing what a woodworker can come up when the imagination runs a little wild sometimes. Nice project and thanks for sharing.

Nice work! I am still pondering making a 12 inch disc sander for larger work.

I found out making this was better than holding my palm sander and sanding small stuff

Innovation showing through.

Good tool; you might eventually buy a commercial one, now that you know just how handy they really are.
