After recently picking up a Surform at a yard sale, I have found out that it removes material too quickly at times. Removing marks in the wood using metal files takes a long time, and the process would be easier with sandpaper. A convex sanding board isn't something I could find in my local hardware store. Therefore I made my own. I am a hopeless perfectionist, so instead of just making a regular sanding board I took a different approach and put much focus on making it look nice. In this tutorial I'm showing you how to make a futuristic sanding board using simple tools. Enjoy!
