Per some advice I got at Rec.Woodworking, I decided to use three sanders – one for each grit – to sand the many small parts of my current project. There are 64 parts that make up the basic frames, all made of either 1×2 or 1×3 stock.

Per my own stubbornness, I ignored several suggestions for how to immobilize groups of pieces for sanding and went with my own idea; a four-sided “corral” made of thinner stock than the pieces to be sanded.

It’s working pretty well so far, especially after I made a small tweak on the second run.
