There pretty slow at sanding, if there is any warping in the cutting board, it’ll take a while. If there is no warping, I don’t think it would take very long. I would go with a 60 grit, I have heard that 36 grit won’t do very much cutting. I would start with 60, then move up to a 120.

I did make my own drum sander. I have all the information you would need on 2 posts that I have. I definiately recommend checking them out. I don’t know how far you are planning taking the drum sander. I took my pretty far with a conveyor system and a four collum lift. I would definiatley put a big motor on it. I have a 1 HP on it. Next time I would put minium of a 3 HP. hope this helps.
