I am about to start my first marquetry project and am curious about pneumatic drum sanding as it looks like that’s the best way to sand the small parts.

Would I have to buy a separate stand-alone tool to be able to do this type of sanding, or are there fixtures that attach to maybe grinders or oscillating spindle sanders?

Thanks for any help.

I’d start with a spindle sander and make your own jigs and fixtures.
If you need fine fine detail sanding there are sanding attachments for scroll saws, however if you can make small sanding blocks, like little sanding files and do some of it by hand.

I’ve got a spindle sander, so you’re right I should just start there and see if that meets my needs. The less money I have to spend the better.

Thanks.
