Just a little hand sander made from scrap oak flooring and some left over cork .
The angle of the tensioner piece and the dado are cut at 10 DEG. at the bottom and 90 DEG. at the top.
Easy ten minute project and works great .

Well that’s an interesting twist. I have a couple of blocks with rounded ends that I have different grit belts looped around for hand sanding, but I wonder how your little tensioner piece changes the dynamic? I might have to build one of these to see the difference. Thanks for posting.

Nice design, I can see that it holds the tension and also would be easy to handle

Yeah guess I don’t read good—flooring and door frame both have that groove on the back to prevent warping
