I know sand papers are not expensive but I was getting tired of wasting half of the sand paper every time I use my old sanding blocks. So I decided to make a few sanding blocks that will allow me to use my sand papers more efficiently. I made four of these blocks using some scrap oak pieces in my shop. These blocks allow me to use 1/4, 1/3, and 1/2 sheet of the sand paper.
For the block that uses half sheet (5 1/2”) I have to make the top block smaller to fit into my palm. I know some people use cork sheet for padding but I found some 1/8” foam sheet with adhesive backing for $0.79 per sheet at Hobby Lobby. Now I am ready to do some serious sanding:)
Thanks for looking.
