I tried building one(12” disk sander) using the following link :

http://benchnotes.com/DISK%20SANDER%20/Disk_Sander.html

The main problem for me was to cut a well balanced 12” disk out of MDF and attaching it to a 2” pulley.
I soon realized I would have a better chance of success finding a 12” aluminum disk like what you might find as Shopsmith accessory.
I ended up buying a ready made one and never looked back.
