I recently completed this sanding block that I saw in a woodworking magazine. It is made from scraps of Maple and
Walnut that I have collected from my local area. It is finished with a couple coats of linseed oil.

A definite step up from my chunk of pine with some double stick tape.

do you mind adding a front “face on” picture? I love the contrast in the colors and the shape. Did you use dados or biscuts on the base? looks realy nice.

Very nice, this is now on my to do list. My list is very long though :)

Great job, this is on my to do list. Did you dimension it to hold a regular fractional size of 9×12 sandpaper? If so, could you say what size? My biggest holdup with making this is figuring out what folded size to use in order to minimize waste.
