I’ve made these a couple of times and taught a class at the Mason Dixon Woodworkers
I find that sanding blocks are like pencils. You can have a box of them but when you need them they cannot be found.
Since I had wood already cut from the class and since I couldn’t find more than one of my old ones at the time I needed them.
So I made 4 more this week. The base wood is mahogany with Walnut sides. The tops are all maple. two were capped with some figured Walnut, One with Sapele and one is solid spalted Maple.
The line to the previous class has all of the measurements for making these. It has all of the steps that we followed in the class.
The background panels are being taken to our Shaker Oval Box class tomorrow. I’m going to use these for bottoms for some carriers.
The bottoms are Quilted Maple, Waterfall Bubinga, Walnut Burl, And a burl from Oregon Madrone Burl.
