I have files and rasps that don’t work all that well and the very good ones are not in the budget so I thought I make one from wood with a replaceable sandpaper covering that can be changed to different grits.
For this one I used a 80 grit cloth back disc which is self adhesive and it works great but for a more rasp like version I will likely use a 36 grit and use spray adhesive to fasten it .
While I was at it I made a little fancy handle rather then just use it with a shaped end on the maple strip that I used .
So Far I like it and it workes as well or better than a file and if it stands up I will likely make a complete set .

Nice idea. Nothing like a rasp or file that doesn’t work well. Thanks for posting.

I’ve used that trick many times. Never with such a beautiful handle, though.

Good idea kiefer. I did similar with psa sand paper but different grit on different sticks.
Nothing as nice as yours.
