|Profile Sanding Block
to admit there are certain things about woodworking that I enjoy more than
others. But like a lot of woodworkers, one of my least favorite jobs is
sanding. That's why I'm always looking for a better way to do it. Especially
when I'm sanding moldings.
When cleaning up moldings (like V-grooves or
roundovers) with sandpaper, the problem is getting the sandpaper to conform to
the moldings profile. So I needed to find a way to hold the sandpaper to match
the shape. The nice thing is, you don't need to buy a detail sander to do this.
What I use is a hand sander with interchangeable heads. I make several heads to
match different molding profiles, see the photo.
