Wanted a bigger block for sanding straight with sandpaper.
A piece of strong good quality plywood (for straightness).
A extra plane handle I had in a a drawer, a old knob was used first, but then I turned a Stanley 4 copy on my new lathe, and two fasteners from a cheap plasic sandpaper holder.
Fast quick and dirty, does the job, and are easy to use – so I’m once again happy.
I have changed the front knob into a wood one in Stanley style now, and it makes it much better than the original metal one you see on pic 4 and 6.
Used it now for a while, and I’m really happy to say – ‘it rocks’!!!
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
