Small pieces of stock and tight curves are tough to sand. The Ridgid oscillating sander is overkill, hand-sanding is tedious, and holding a Dremel in one hand and stock in the other is an invitation to poor results. Trying to clamp small pieces and bring the tool to the wood works only a little bit better.
I got this plan from Wood Magazine, August 2000. They tout it as a rotary tool router table, but I’ve only used it as a sanding table so far. It excels at that job.
The top is 1/2” ply, the back is 1/4” ply, the side supports are 3/4” radiata pine, and the support blocks were resawn on the bandsaw from a piece of 2×4. Some strips of foam tape mounted inside the support block cutouts hold the Dremel securely. I can change bits from under the table using the little wrench that comes with the tool.
