Tips for your sanding success
Build your own "cordless" detail sander
For small or occasional tight-spot sanding chores, try building this hand-powered corner/detail sander. Cut the handle from a scrap piece of 3/4" hardwood plywood to the shape shown. Make the grip end long enough to fit comfortably in your hand and round its edges. Now, make the triangular pad with 2 1/2" sides, each cut at a 60° angle. Attach the pad where shown, apply a piece of self-adhesive sandpaper to the bottom of the pad, and sand away.
