When I have some 3/4 of an inch of baltic birch left over from a project, I cut them up into two inches by three and a half inches. I then apply two sided tape on both sides of the wooden block, I then apply two different grits of sandpaper, one on each side of the block, proud of all the sides of the block. Using a sharpe utility knife trim the sandpaper flush with the block. You can sand very tight corners. I have been using these for over 25 years, THANKS GREG

Simple, but effective. When the sandpaper is toast, do you remove and replace, or just chuck it?

good idea. It would be very handy to have several those near by.

I also make my sanding blocks using left over birch ply. although i apply them with spray adhesive. i also use a sharpie to write the grit on the edge for quick reference.

When the sand paper wears out I remove and replace it, saving the block. The third time around, I replace the two sided tape and sandpaper. GREG
