Great idea but this doesn't look like polystyrene - no little balls. Is it a different type of polystyrene to the usual packaging material? Can you remember where you got it?

Excellent, though I never have patience for orbital sanders. Used to using angle grinders with flap disk wheels on metal, so invariably my laziness leads to using this on wood as well, of course my wood surfaces end up feeling smooth, but undulated like crazy! Your is a much better idea! And I promise not to try this mod with my angle grinder attachment, (though I did ponder it for a sec')
