While drum sanding drawer stock for my bathroom vanity project, I realized there are a lot of small tips I picked up along the way that help make this tool even better.
In this video, I'll go through a number of tips and ideas. If you have a drum sander, I'm sure you'll know some of them, but hopefully others will be new and useful to you.
I got lazy and didn't setup the softboxes so the lighting was a bit washed out; easy to get lazy in a 97ºF shop! I think I'm still sweating from that day...
As a bit of an update to the vanity project, there are a number of small things to work on now that don't really merit a video. I've sanded the two outside panels to P400 and we'll go over a wet-sanded finish for them; it feels like glass when prepared this way and so easy to do! It's a great tactile finish especially to the sculpted surface that's purely there for the tactile experience. Drawer stock is prepared and ready to become drawer boxes so those will be recorded this weekend. Now, we'd really make progress if a cold front suddenly moved through the city :)
