Our spotlighted tool for today's Tool Time Tuesday is....da da dummmmmmm.......
The 1/4 sheet palm Sander!
I actually got the bigger sander first, the 1/3 sheet size.
It was not friendly.
It didn't get those little corners.
It is soooooo loud!
Yes, it was good for the ugly coffee table from the thrift store
that had awful brown laquer and years of crayon on it....
But my cute little ornaments I love to make,
or the little shelves for my daughters room....
I ended up sanding more of my fingers away than the extra left from my crooked cuts.:)
I actually got my first little sander 3 years ago
at Walmart no less when my sister and I really got into doing or crafts together.
It was $10 and some weird brand I'd never heard of.
That was an easy compromise, only a week's worth of Dr. Pepper from McDonalds.
Now they start at about $20 at most stores. Don't forget to visit those pawn shops!
I've been tempted to get bigger, better sanders, I even got the cute little "mouse" with the velcro sand paper. But I like to be cost efficient and paying that extra couple bucks for the velcro really gets me....
Somehow I always end up back to this little one.
It's my good friend and helps me hide all my imperfect cuts.
That'll just be our little secret.....;>)
