How to sand smooth curves easy

In order to get a good finish on any material, you usually need to sand it down. But who among us can claim that they actually enjoy sanding? It’s tedious, boring and utterly monotonous. So wouldn’t you like to know how to make the sanding process quicker and easier? Sure you would, and Woodworking with The Wood Whisperer is here to show you how. Straight edges are usually no problem, just take a sanding block and go at it! But when there are slight curves, a sanding block becomes more or less useless. So watch this video and learn how you can make an alternative tool to the sanding block that works for curves as well!

How to make bent wood objects

We have all seen wood objects with rounded shapes, that’s nothing new. But when the grain of the wood shows that this piece was not just sawed into shaped but bent into shape, it starts turning heads. Bending wood? Surely something as hard as wood can’t possibly be bent can it? Ooh yes it can, and it’s not that hard to do either! Steve Ramsey knows exactly how it’s done, and he made this video to demonstrate it. In this case he makes a holder for a razor, but you could make almost anything out of your bent wood like coat hangers, bracelets, decorations and even large things like furniture. So watch this and let your imagination run wild!
