Hardwood Hints: Sanding Unique Situations

By Marcos Proti

Many homes here in Los Angeles have a very super modern design where baseboards aren’t an option (sometimes referred to as net-fit). Outside of addressing the required expansion space in the flooring, we also run into unique situations when we have to sand the gap between the floor and bottom of the drywall, pictured above (which is normally only 1/4” tall). That’s when we make a little sander attachment, pictured on the right.

I normally use an oscillating saw/multi-tool blade that is old and dull. I tape the blade and put a Velcro stick on the blade, which allows me to use a hook-and-loop paper. We obviously have to cut the paper for the blade.
