Sanding Block



I love having my students make their own sanding block. It teaches them how to properly tear sand paper and use it to their advantage. It also eliminates waste and creates a more accurate way for them to detail their work.

This assignment is to directly succeed with the three view drawing project. The drawing and some other instructions that will be provided in this lesson will help make this project fun, inexpensive, and help create quality finishing techniques.
