Foam Sander

You can buy contoured sanding blocks for sanding odd shapes. But these are expensive. Foam water “noodles” are an inexpensive alternative.

Water noodles are pool toys that can be purchased a most discount stores for a few dollars. They are made of foam and you can easily cut them to any shape you desire for sanding profiles and curves.

 

Respectfully submitted,
