My original sanding blocks consisted of scrap blocks. Worked OK, but I kept loosing them and they never quite got into the corners the way I wanted. Sooooo I came up with this design.

Uses ¼ sheets, one end is secured via some points, the other is wrapped around. When the top is secured on the ¼” dowel tightens the sand paper up nicely.

There also unique enough that I’ll probably recognize them before tossing in the scrap bin.

-- Quality: There is hardly anything in the world that some men cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price are this man’s lawful prey.

is it a 1/4 inch hole or slightly larger that the dowel rides in?
