Topic tags/keywords: question

I made a Chinese checkerboard in cherry for my wife. As we were playing a game, I noticed the the “V” dimple holes for marbles all have some tearout at the top rim. Which of you talented LJ’s have a good method for sanding the rim to remove or blend out this tearout? V shaped sanding stick? Help please.

Make custom stick and use “stick on” sandpaper.

Lay the sandpaper on the board and using your thumb, simply press down and spin your thumb (and thusly the paper) back and forth.
