Step 8: Get Creative With the Shaping

Picture of Get Creative With the Shaping

To get some more of the natural curves, I recommend you switch over to a spindle sander. Since the spindles are spinning and moving up and down, it helps remove material quickly without burning.

Alternatives: For years before getting this machine, I just used sanding drums chucked into my drill press as my make-shift spindle sander. Be creative in how you find ways to shape these pulls! You could use curved files or even sandpaper wrapped around a dowel to assist you.
