    Sander Stand with Drawers and Shelves

    Many have heard me lament machine stands that offer no storage. This tale is one of those with a twist. Not only does the tool come with a stand that only offers a shelf for storage but, I had to get rid of an old faithful rolling, drawered, work table to make the new sander fit in the shop. The contents of that old faithful standby (pun intended) have been in my way for the last several weeks contained in some plastic storage containers.

    The Supermax 19-38 drum sander is a dream to use but, it takes up a fair sized footprint.

    My plan is for something sort of like this. Please excuse the representative shapes for the sander; they suited my needs.

    Building this serves two purposes; it gets me a mobile stand with storage AND gets this darn plywood out from behind my bench .

    Nothing fancy here. Just standard rabbet and dado panel construction.

    I will see if I can dig up enough scrap for some fancy drawer fronts again like the tablesaw wing drawer unit. I have the feeling the scraps may be pecan this time around .

    Along with a bridge in Brooklyn, I have a handy dandy shop expander for sale!

    I'm looking forward to seeing your new, finished, sander table.

    Enjoy,
    Dad

    Finished cutting the larger panels and started the carcass assembly. I didn't get too far as I took time to crosscut a couple more cutting boards and get them in the clamps (upper left of pic).

    I'm using curved cauls in each direction of the rabbet joint along the corner/edge for glue-up. Man is it hot out there!

    You folks that normally work with sheet goods have got to be rolling on the ground laughing when you see how I approach these things . I've seen your guy's work and you make it look a lot easier, and a lot better, than I do . I should have taken more progress shots like showing the quasi-torsion box construction for the top. The drawer opening is 25" or so and a nearly 200 pound machine mounts dead center front to back. This meant I wanted some reasonable stiffness across that span. My approach was like so:

    Here's the carcass on the bench:

    The last pic is a view from the back with the carcass laying on the right side. The holes in the "top" are for the sander mount positions (bolts on from below). The 1/4" skin of the torsion box has 1" access holes cut to allow access for a socket wrench.

    Now I just need the trim, some drawers, and the little shelves on the back where the sandpaper rolls will get stored.

    Here's a reality check; even though this thing looks huge, it is still smaller than the actual footprint that the sander takes up .

    I lost a couple days being down with a sore throat. Got caught up a bit after work and got the shelves in the rear. The three black dots along the top piece of trim are screws/washers that allow access to the mounting bolts. I was going to glue in the trim since I did build in access holes from below. I just had visions of losing a bolt or a washer in that torsion area between the skins and so chickened out. I was hoping to hit the drawer boxes this Sunday as Saturday I have other domestic duties .

    I somehow let Mom's birthday sneak up on me . . . again. I'll have to let the drawers for this guy wait whilst I concentrate on a cutting board for mom .

    I always knew those shaving creme can lids would come in handy for something; beats the heck out of rubber bands .

    Hey you better take those back to the store, Glenn, those pivot wheels look defective to me...

    You save your shaving creme lids!? No wonder your shop is so crowded...

    You're right, that is a big footprint. I'm curious to see how it will turn out!

    ...art
    (who's shop is so small that he dispensed with fixed wheels on all his mobile stuff...)
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I know just what you mean. A few items of mine had all four corners swiveling for just that reason. For items that have to really be mobile, four-corner-swivel is the way to go . This guy should really only be pulled out from the wall for use and then pushed back. My large bandsaw does the same and so far so good but, I hardly ever move it .
