Hot off the press today with another 3 near complete (pics to follow).

Really pleased with this one as the end grain showed some gorgeous colouring and detail.

Oak, Ash, Padauk, Sapele, Maple and Beech. Rounded finger holds added using a 1/4” bull nosed router bit. Dimensions – 450mm x 320mm x 50mm thick. The new 100mm belt sander is working a treat with a TRU attachment when achieving a perfectly flat top and bottom…..really don’t know how I managed all other boards using just a 60mm cheap and nasty belt sander!

Gorgeous! More info found here:

Looking good, I like the hefty size. Can you elaborate on this TRU attachment for your belt sander?

Thanks Dan. Yeah the TRU plate is a flat stainless plate that attaches to your tool and makes a 12” square platform around the working abrasive. It ensures that you do not go off level or gouge deep into the timber. It’s a little slower than just going at the board, but the results are as good as a drum sander and (more importantly to me) keeps in line with “handmade”.

Hi Tommy. Skil supply them with their sanders, but once you have one in your hands you can make your own to suit. I made a large one using the same design from Skil, but bigger.

Link shows a smaller one here:
