Thanks for all the feedback and links.

I enjoy building home made power tools and usually do so when a particular project could benefit from it. I will not build the drum sander just for the couple off end grain cutting boards. They would just be the incentive to start the building process. There are other uses besides cutting boards that could be useful if I had a drum sander, but I was just curious how effective it really was. I have built a few jigs which looked nice on paper, but in real life did not work so good.

For the cutting boards I will continue using router planing jig to remove any warping there might be, but it does not leave a smooth finish, which leaves a need for final sanding. I might add that sanding is not my favorite part of ww :-)
