That’s great ! I’m going to have to try that trick. I don’t know if my hands will hold up to the sandpaper on those knobs. What grit do you find works best.

Thanks, Niki. My wife had to come to my “office” to see why I was laughing so hard.

Thank you so much

Oscorner
I’m using #120 for the knobs (you can see it on one of the pics) but maybe #150 or #180 will be ok, just try

I believe that you were laughing about the last picture…
I made everything there, beginning with the floor tiles, installing the toilet, the cabinets, sink, cutting the wall and installing the window. The big mirror was installed by the glass guys.

Very informative Niki. I’ve used sandpaper before not not to the extent that you are showing. I use it on the back of my straight edge when I’m cutting veneer to keep it from sliding as you draw the knife down the edge.

Cool idea Niki, still think you should be a teacher…

You are doing very well teaching us at LJ!

Thanks a bunch for the idea(s) you put out here in LumberJocks.

Great work Niki. How well do those spring clamps work when you are using the guide and the router? Are you able to keep a straight line with them?

That is a great idea for a workbench. I may have to try that to help with my sanding needs.

Niki, I see you have dust extraction on your sander. Great.

If you didn’t have dust extraction you could make a jig that would fit on both sides of the workmate and hook it up to a Shopvac. Hmmmm, I may try that.

I want to see what kind of downdraft table Niki builds. It will probably have sandpaper on top, hook to his dust collector, and probably look like a nice entertainment center.

Keep those jigs and ideas coming Niki.
