How to Make a Homemade Sponge Sander
By: Joe Truini
A sponge sander is perfect for sanding molding since it conforms to the surface you’re sanding. While you can buy a sponge sander at a hardware store, it’s easy to make your own by:
- Cutting a piece of sandpaper to size.
- Wrapping it around a kitchen sponge.
- Hold it with your thumb and fingers while sanding the surface.
Not only is a homemade sponge sander less expensive, it allows you to change grits and replace the sandpaper as needed.
