What does everyone use for sanding

inside boxes or vases other places that are to deep or around a corner in a turning for a finger.

About half the time my fingers can not reach that far down or on the side so what do you use??
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

If I can't reach it, I don't bother trying.
Cellulose runs through my veins!

For going deep, sometimes I cut a slot in a dowel, insert sandpaper into the slot. It's not for everything, but at times the only thing that works for me.

Woodturners are the only people that will look.

Thanks Hairy

How wide is the slot and how deep?  Also thank you for the pen blanks you sent. Yes

Wide enough to just be able to slide the strip of sandpaper into and almost as deep as the sandpaper is wide. You don't want bare dowel sticking out the end.

I use that technique but also have a piece of Klingspor's sticky-back velcro near the end of a 1" dowel a foot long. That way I can use the velcro-back sanding discs and interface pads I use for OD sanding.
We do segmented turning, not because it is easy, but because it is hard.

Steve gave my answer.

Or, alternatively, wire brush on long mandrel, followed by https://www.woodworkingshop.com/search.aspx?q=minimop I like them for detailing finger-stubbing, but reachable places.
Better to follow the leader than the pack. Less to step in.

Thanks

I think the rock tumbler is out since I have one still. Yes Laugh

The mop looks very good tho.  I never thought of putting in dry sand before and turning at say 40 to 200rpm.

A major nice thing about segmented turning is that you can turn and sand the inside as you assemble the rings if you choose to. You just need to be careful of wall thickness to keep chatter and explosions down, not that it has ever happened to me of course.

(The difference between doctors and turners is that turners can burn their mistakes.)

Maybe bad Dr. burn paperwork. Yes

Put the dowel in a drill.
