Sanding blocks

The furniture repair business got a little slow this past week so I spent a little time making a few things for the shop and cleaning up a little.

These sanding blocks use 1/4 sheets of sandpaper and with 4 of them I can load them each with a different grit.

Very nice – good use of down-time. Even difficult work can be enjoyable using tools that look good.

Those look great. I have to do this now. Did you use any kind of cushioning on the underside, or just the wood?

I need to do that. I should have done that 10 years ago already! Thanks for the inspiration.

The blocks do have felt glued to the bottom. You could also use cork.
