I’ve seen numerous posts of sanding blocks but none like what I prefer so thought I’d share these.
The ones on the left are for sanding belts, the others for sheet sand paper.
The belt blocks have a bolt through 1/2” hardwood dowel, clearance hole on the head end, the other tapped. Packing tape helps the slide.
The center block in the second pic has a nut embedded because it is soft wood.
The smaller is hardwood and is tapped for the 1/4-20 screw. Clearance hole in the 1/2” dowel which fits the 1/2” channel.
Since there is no need to tighten the screw hard the tapped threads in hardwood work fine.
