The idea was to come up with a sanding block design which was tool less and easy to change between grits. I think I accomplished that but it ended up being slightly over complicated for a sanding block;)

Might be a ittle over complicated, but, It does look good and I am sure it will work well!

I have made somewhat similar sanding blocks and the one suggestion I would have is to maybe add some cork to the bottom of the sanding pad. I found that it allows for enough give incase the paper gets clogged as to not gouge the wood but is still firm enough to do a good job sanding.

A great design of sanding block. I think I would add a layer of mouse mat between the wood and sandpaper
