DIY Sanding Block

When you’re working with wood or MDF a lot, sanding sponges come in handy to sand down surfaces evenly. However, they do tend to be a bit pricier than regular sandpaper, so if you’re looking to save a few dollars, here’s an easy way to make a DIY sanding block using sandpaper sheets:

You take a piece of scrap wood and staple a sheet of sandpaper cut big enough to wrap around the piece of wood and long enough to cover the whole length:

And that’s it, now you have a sanding block that makes sanding so much easier, especially when you have a lot of sanding to do as I did when I made this bench for my dining room banquette!
