    just curious....since it seems right up your alley. i once read about someone using buckskin, wetting it, and using the moisture to keep sand on for a down and dirty sandpaper. how's this one hold up for you, and how much work was that to make?

    That's a really cool idea! This one worked ok, but it took some trial and error to figure out that using it like commercial sandpaper caused heat from friction and started melting the pitch. I wouldn't want to refinish cabinets with it, but it worked fine for a couple of arrow shafts.

    It wasn't much work to make because I already had the pitch glue and bark. All I did was warm both of the them up, smear on some glue, pour on the sand and press it into place with my fingers. When I do this again, I'll use a bit more glue in hopes of holding more of the sand in place.
