Some time ago when I made my first “deep” turning I borrowed a sanding tool from a friend. It did the job so well that I decided to make a copy, so here is the link to the photo-shoot.

G’day, Harry. What great timing for this project. I was just thinking of how I would do some deep sanding and here you have the answer. I’ll be building one of these but I may have to wait for spring.
That is neat the way you have the hook to get around the bend near the top of a hollow vessel.
thanks for the detailed tutorial! You are very good at sharing your knowledge and I appreciate that.
It helps all of us woodworkers!
Tool making is fun especially when you can make it just like you need it!

Cheers…...............Jim

Very good, Harry!

I’m not into turning, but I can see the value of your tool.. to sand into those deep hard to get to places!

One other comment…
Ever since I taught you how to put Text into a picture, you’ve been doing a great job of using my tutoring…

I forgot something… after all these years, I should have mentioned this to you…

========================

Before starting to type your screen texts, analyze the color of the backgrounds where you will want your text to be.
Depending on the background vs your Text Color… if there is not much difference in Contrast / Color, the text will be hard or impossible to read if placed over that background.

Always change the Text Color so it will work with your Background before entering your text…

========================

In this case, I think you had yellow text on top of a Yellowish background… I saw traces of text… but could NOT read it. There was yellow text on top of another yellowish background, but there was barely enough Contrast to make it readable.

End of lesson…

Other than that, you’re doing a great job!
Keep it up!

Thank you very much.

I to have been looking for a way to sand deep turning. Great idea. I will be making one for myself before long after my new lathe arrives.

Wow, I’m flabbergasted at your responses guys. As I’ve said many times, the easiest thing to do is copy what someone else has created and who knows, the one loaned to me may well have been a copy of someone Else’s design!
Joe, I acknowledge all you have said BUT, this project was made some time ago, before I had fully grasped the use of paint.net and Photo Shop. I’m still no expert but I’m improving all the time, albeit slowly, don’t forget, I’m 79 today!
