They use to be called lacquer sanding sponges, not sure of the official name now. They are 220 grit, black sponges on one side and a soft foam backing on the other side.

Very flexible and sand like a dream. Edges are pretty much the only thing we sometimes sand through, but with practice and being careful, you shouldn't have an issue.

We switched to those about 2 or 3 years ago and I haven't found anything better since, we buy them by the box (several sheets per box). I like them because they are soft, the grit isn't aggressive at all (smooths out the finish nicely), and they are flexible enough to do radius turns and other things.

For moulding I would stick with the new 3m sponges with the dots on them to help conform to the profile...or use the foam & sand paper trick and make your own custom block that fits the profile. Honestly, I think the lacquer sanding sponges still work fine for moulding, most people only feel the fat side of the moulding anyway as the small stuff they can't even get their fingers into.

Good luck and take some pictures for us to see how things turn out.

EZ DRY RACK
So the half the wood on the racks are sitting face down on the nails, doesn't that leave marks and scratches ?

It is baseboard and door casing trim... I don't think the backside matters, but I was thinking of making mine with some dowels. Set the distance, mark hole locations, drill holes with drill press to halfway through the 2x4 and glue in the dowels.

**EDIT: I didn't realize he has two per slot, back to back. Now that makes more sense why dowels would be a better option.

Another thought... This is only a seal coat, maybe 2. Finish coat will be applied after installation.

No not really. These are a different animal than the normal "sanding sponge".

They are like these below but ours are black. Black sponge/black backing and fine. I'll have to see if I can find a box sometime this weekend or a vin number.

Many guys on here use them. If you are interested in getting them at what they cost, then more power to ya. They do the job well.

I use my own version like several others here do too. My wood crib system cost about $40 to $45 for 25 1x3"x 8' furring strips and a few 2x3's cut into blocks. You can hold about 250 4" wide boards on that, or more if you go higher up. The crib is very stable despite looks.

Don't know why my pics gotta mess up today.

Thought I would give you guys an update... we have been battling winds and snow over the past week! Some of our masking failed, but we made it through!

12 windows were in the upstairs area alone (which made it quite drafty!).

We had to match all pine windows/casings to the natural sapele. Looking amazing!

@woodcoyote we ended up cutting regular fine sanding sponges in half. They work great! Just rub them together to wear them down a bit on all sides before using. Virtually ZERO rub-through.

Ideally, one would never put a finish on the "track". In the olden days, those were not finished, but waxed from time to time.

I haven't found anyone to put up with that yet, but it was done for good reason...no sticky windows.
