    Sanding Saw

    For those of us who collect homemade sanding blocks or need to sand around corners and curves, may I present to you this homemade bow sander.
    This bow sander is great for tight, curved places and works from both top and bottom.

    Maybe your great grandchildren will look at yours someday and ask, “What was that thing for anyway?
