putting itty bitty splines in itty bitty kerfs, and sometimes having to sand them so they fit, makes my itty bitty fingertips ache….

Maybe you need to use some manly splines, instead of those sissy splines.

This last week I have been sanding the inside radius’ of bowls and since I am stuborn about buying those nice spongy things to sand with, (they cost a lot) I too have sanded off my fingerprints. I feel for ya depictureboy! I feel for ya!
Oh, for a real treat, with your tender fingers as they are, try replacing the sandpaper on a Grizzley drum sander…
