Whether it's leveling a few dust nibs in a finish or cleaning up a spot of dried glue, sanding into small, tight spaces can prove difficult. If you get stumped trying to sand in a spot too tight for an electric detail sander, don't despair. Wooden crafts sticks, available in bulk at most crafts stores, provide the answer.

With spray adhesive, secure a strip of sandpaper to the crafts stick. Trim the sandpaper flush with the edges of the stick, and you'll have a great little micro-detail sander.
