Belt Sander: Equipment at MADE Makerspace's Woodshop
6" belt width
Basics of Woodshop, Expert Check-off: Woodshop

Power sanders are used to shape and smooth wood with abrasion. MADE has four power sanders in the woodshop: disc/belt, oscillating edge belt sander, oscillating spindle, and drum sander. The oscillating edge belt sander is great for long straight edges, like on shelves or table legs. Above it, we’ve hung an air filter to keep our woodshop from getting too dusty, and we’ve also hooked up a state-of-the-art dust collection system so your project cleanup is extra easy.

Need some wood for your project? MADE also has a selection of lumber for sale on our Lumber Ramp. Oak, ash, pine, maple, walnut, and more! We source our wood from Lumber Logs LLC, a local urban log recycler, and if you’d like a larger selection be sure to check out their saw mill. Visit their website here!

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I bring when I reserve a slot in the woodshop?

Bring your own wood, fasteners, hardware, any any other consumables when you use the woodshop at MADE. The shop provides a limited number of clamps and some basic hand tools, and there are some hand-held power tools available for checkout (orbital sander, jig saw, circular saw, etc.)

Can I bring my own sandpaper?

MADE provides 100 grit paper on the sanders. If you’d like to bring in your own sandpaper, our staff will change it out for you.
