Sanding block is quick to make and easy to use

Article Image A sanding block is an important piece of
woodworking tools, with designs starting from primary to
high-tech. I’ve had good luck with this bandsawn block for a lot of
years. It may be made rapidly and sized to suit a strip of
sandpaper minimize from a traditional sheet. The hot button is the wedges,
which go in simply and pull the paper taut. I often make the
block by gluing up two items of maple, which stands up properly to
the wedging motion. The wedges are bandsawn from the ends and match
proper again into their notches after the paper is inserted. Just a few
faucets on the sting of the bench and the wedges are tight. I make a
few different cuts and contours on the block for consolation, however that’s
about it. You can also make a couple of block and preserve your key
sandpaper grits locked and loaded. Make sure to tear the sandpaper
sheet crosswise into 4 equal strips, every about 23⁄four in. extensive
