    Curved sanding sticks

    This are some little sanding sticks I made to get access to some very difficult to reach areas, which very frequently occur doing luthiery.
    You need them in various sizes and various radii.
    I did them using either PVC strips, shaped with the heat gun, or steel sheet, put un shape with the hammer on a big tube.
    The sand paper is hold with double face tape.
    They can be used on both sides, convex and concave.

    Neat idea. PVC does not deform easily.

    Hi Christophe, do the PVC handles last as long as the metal sheet?
