Handheld Sanding Belt

By: John Doyle
Sanding oddly shaped pieces can be a pain. Matching the contours can be difficult and time-consuming, but this sanding belt makes hitting those curves much easier.

The belt itself is from a belt sander, measuring 4" wide and cut down to 16" long. The handles on the ends are pieces of 3/4" plywood. The plywood is screwed together, sandwiching either end of the belt. After that I chamfered the corners of the handles for a smooth, easy grip in my hand. When one belt wears down, I just attach the handles to a new belt.
