This inexpensive drum sander can be made by slipping a foam-rubber bicycle grip over a 5/8-in.dowel.The grip will stay nicely in place without adhesive.Notch and center-punch the dowel so it will run between centers on your lathe.
Form sandpaper into a cylinder, scrape the abrasive off the bottom edge of the seam and hot-glue the sandpaper around the foam-rubber.The sander has just enough give not to sand flat spots on curved surfaces but is firm enough to make smoothing fast and easy.
