Today, I saw Garagewoodworks sanding block video. It looked like a cool project that you can customize any way you want. So I made mine out of 3/4’’ white oak and 1/2’’ plywood. On Garagewoodworks sanding block he ran a bolt through his, but I didn’t have a long enough bolt to do that. So I routed a dado that would fit a piece of leftover T-track, and then secured it with a screw. Then I drilled a hole in the center of the 1/2’’ plywood top, so the T-bolt can drop over it. And a washer and a star knob holds everything together. I’m not sure if I like the star knob, but it works okay for now.

Thanks Garagewoodworks for the video!
And I would suggest you checking out Garagewoodworks videos!

That’s a simple way of using T-track scraps!


Thank you.
