Here’s my problem and it’s a recurring one: when I cut dividers for box trays, I often cut them too long to ensure they are not too short! Then I sand them down to size. But often when hand sanding the ends of these small pieces (1/8” thick x 3/4” wide), I end up off square to the edges. Don’t know if it’s old eyeballs, lack of hand-eye coordination or just something else.
This must happen to others, too, I would suspect that I’m not unique in this. Perhaps there is some jig that I could cobble together that would allow me to sand these ends square but I don’t recall seeing one in all the websites and tips that I have looked at over the years.
Any suggestions on how to sand these ends square would be very much appreciated. I don’t have any stationary sanding machines, only a ROS and a palm sander.
