I’ve been using a belt/disc desktop sander (4”x36”) to sand my walnut end grain pieces (see image) to get rid of the miter sawblade cut marks. I use 220 grit then 320 grit, then I change to hand sanding for final fine sanding.
I was wondering if it’s any better/faster if I got a sander that fits a bigger sanding belt (6”x48”) with more HP. Would that make any difference? Is there another hand technique or machinery that would cut down on this laborious task?
Would a drum sander like this one be beneficial?
