I attended Day 2 of the Woodworks Event (Novi, Michigan; outside of Detriot). The show is very small, but I did encounter one vendor that was of great interest… Bill Bush of Bush Products Inc (along with Lakeshore Hardwoods). Bill gave a very good talk on the stages of sanding and then using oil to finish. I was amazed at the way the PSA (Pressure Sensative Adhesive) Aluminum Oxide paper sanded quickly and efficiently, with very little build up (could just brush away the saw dust). Bill stressed the need for the paper to be fixed to either a block, a profile block (if sanding a molded profile… he demonstarted how to make a sanding aid), or an ergonomic sanding block (cushioned block with firm base). He recommends one sanding block per grit size (80-120-180-220-400). The sanding block he sells can be purchased through Lakeshore Hardwoods at www.lakeshorehardwoods.com . This is one of the best, or possibly the best, sanding block I’ve ever used. Very little fatique when sanding… and in combination with the Aluminum Oxide PSA sanding paper (Carborundum) very few strokes are needed. Of everything at the show… I purchased the sanding blocks, sanding paper, and the Bill Bush’s oil finish (Bush Oil). The rest of the show was very small and very few bargains. I do not plan on attending Day 3 tomorrow. In two weeks another woodworking show will be in town… The Woodworking Shows will be at another location outside of Detroit in Mount Clemens, Michigan December 5, 6, and 7. I plan on attending that show to see if there are any new vendors or better bargains. I’ll let you know the results.
