Sanding Planes

This is a shot of a few 'sanding planes' I made over the past year. They're a great shop made tool that puts a little pleasure into the dreaded task of sanding. I'll do all I can to leave these things sitting on my shelf; smoothing plane, card scrapers etc...but when all else fails and you need to turn to sanding, these can be a pleasure to use. Dress 'em up to suit your needs and away you go!
For a more detailed description of how I made my sanding planes you can check out the current issue of Fine Woodworking Magazine, November/December 2008 Issue No. 201
Me and my sanding planes were chosen as the tip of the month in their Methods of Work section!
