Quick-cut­ting sand­pa­per tem­plate

WOOD - - SHOP TIPS - —Chris De­gatano, Franklin, Tenn.

Here’s a su­per-sim­ple way of cut­ting sand­pa­per to ex­act size for sand­ing blocks and fin­ish­ing san­ders. From 1∕2" or 3∕4" ply­wood, cut a tem­plate that matches the di­men­sions of the sand­pa­per sheet for each tool. Bevel-cut two ad­join­ing edges at 45o. Those “sharp­ened” edges al­low you to crisply cut the sand­pa­per by pulling up on it. La­bel the tem­plate with its paired tool and drill a hang­ing hole.
