As I was finishing the little Side Table, I used my last piece of 220 sandpaper. That may not sound like a big deal to most of you, but it meant something to me. A little over two years ago I purchased a twenty sheet pack of 220grit sandpaper, quartered the sheets and stored them in a little holder ala. Paul Sellers. So eighty quarter sheets of sandpaper has lasted me over two years. Not too bad.
The gaping hole where the 220 used to reside.
Back when I purchased that twenty sheet box of sandpaper I also put together a little jig for quickly and consistently quartering the full-size sheets. I didn’t come up with the idea, but can’t remember where I saw it on the internet. Anyway, I sketched up some plans back then and put this little jig together.
Is this jig a necessity? Heck no, but it makes quick work of the task and provides about ten minutes of meditative activity to boot.
