Hey there.

Is there any innovative ways to easily sand a profile with out losing the profile shape? I was wondering if anyone has made a negative of the profile out of balsa wood maybe? Where can you get blocks of balsa wood? Or any other ideas to sand the profile?

Foam board works well for forming for sanding profile blocks. There is also a rubber profile set of sanding blocks you can purchase, they are wedged shape with the thick part having the radius edge for radius sanding.

I have a set of these from woodworker.com. If you are interested, the item # is 150-362.

You can use epoxy to make a negative. Just cover the piece with kitchen wrap, get a piece somewhat shaped to the form yoiu need, fill it with epoxy and slap them together until the epoxy hardens,
