The project I am working on would be easier with some sanding sticks, so I made some. It’s quick and easy. You can use any grit you want, or mix them, and the wood can be anything handy. You can even rip them from 2 x stock or just about anything else. I happened to find something at the dollar store that fit the bill.

You made a nice video of a clever idea.

I’d like to know how you use the sanding sticks.
Turns out, it isn’t something I have used, nor heard of, but I’m thinking of what i might do with them.

Thanks for the post.

I make sanding sticks from craft sticks (popsicle sticks) and thin pieces of wood. I use 3M77 spray adhesive to stick the sand paper on.

great idea

why not leave the point on some of the sticks for tight spots and corners?

That is a good idea, in my case I am not in need of it.
