I’m in need of a large diameter radius sanding block. Like 40” Radius, about 5” Wide. I made a 6.5” radius block out of 3/4” ply for sanding hole plugs on a drum project, using the bandsaw and sandpaper laid on the surface of the drum, but now I’m wanting some bigger blocks.
I’ve seen some jigs for making radius dishes, but at the moment, I’m wanting to make a long radiused “extrusion” for sanding the snare beds on this drum.
Also, I’ve got a few drum projects in mind where I’d like to make a variety of male and female sanding blocks in different radii, and a bit wider than I cut on my bandsaw, and in any case, lack the “truth” surface I’m building to (so I can’t really use the lay sandpaper on master surface trick to finalize the block).
What’s the best way to go about making radius blocks? Particularly a long large radius block for the snare beds?
