I generally do my sanding by hand, often using a sanding pad. But, I have given some serious though to getting this one sander from Harbor Freight. I will see if I can find a link.
Great job on that one Shawn! That is a piece of craftsmanship!I have found that sanding by hand with a bow sander works best for me. I have one that I made, but you can buy them as well. They are easy to make; if you search it, you will quickly find images and patterns. Although it is by hand, it works well because it removes material evenly as you rotate your stick in a proper clamping system.
