Belt Sanding Block


I do most of my sanding by hand, so I made this convenient wooden sanding block to fit 3-in. x 21-in. sanding belts. The block is split for two-thirds of its length, and the belt is tensioned with a removable dowel. A softer wood, such as poplar or white pine, gives the best results. If the belt stretches and becomes loose, insert a slightly larger dowel.
