    Small and Easy to Grip (22-Oct-09)

    This sanding block is small and fits easily into the palm of your hand. The only disappointing thing I found is that it comes with only one piece of sanding paper and no directions as to how to put the sanding paper in! I haven't used it that much so I don't know how long the sanding paper will last, compared to the sanding I used to do in construction! As to installation, I figured how that you simply put up each end and you will find some brads which will catch the paper when you slip it in and let go --- kinda simple but I would have appreciated a few lines of instructions!

    Tim Holtz Idea-ology Sanding Block (15-Nov-08)

    A little smaller than I thought, and I would've preferred something bigger to fit better in my hand. I'd also prefer some kind of cover over the sandpaper. But since it's small, it does fit nicely in my crop bag. Works great with the video Tim had on his blog--placing his masks under a white-core, patterned paper, then lightly sanding the paper. You're left with the image etched into your paper in white!

    Great sander (24-Jan-10)

    I just got this sanding block and I have to say that the design is brilliant. It holds a regular sheet of sanding paper but it uses a claming system to hold it in place and the block gives you control over the sanding paper in a way that you wouldn't get otherwise. This block is great for sanding paper like the core'dinations paper to get a nice distressed look.

    The Best Sander Ever! (16-Dec-10)

    As soon as I got this sander, I had to use it! I was amazed how easy it was to load the paper. It fit so nicely in my hand so I was able to control where I was going to sand and how much. I have used emory boards and sandpaper and this was sooo much better. Thank you Tim for this!!!

    Wonderful! (17-Sep-08)

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new little sanding block by Tim Holtz. I was hesitant at buying it, but so glad that I have; distressing chipboard and paper edges is so much easier now! A must have if you like to distress!

    really makes sanding easier (17-Aug-10)

    Just like the title says this really makes sanding easier! I love how the paper locks into the grips and the curve really helps me get a good grip on it. I love using this with the core dinations lines!

    Great product (11-Jan-11)

    Another winner by Tim Holtz, someone who creates tools that make sense. This is easy to hold, easy to use, and easy to install the sandpaper. Love this!!

    Tim Holtz Sanding Block (27-Mar-11)

    This sanding block is wonderful, especially if one has arthritic hands/fingers. It is very easy to "load" the sandpaper and use.

    I have mixed feelings (04-Oct-12)

    I am a hugeTim Holtz fan, so maybe I was expecting too much of this sanding block, but I am slightly disappointed. It is quite small and only comes with one piece of fine grit sandpaper. I had trouble getting the sandpaper attached tightly. I am not sure how much I will use this piece and think I might have been better off with another brand or perhaps just using a nail file or plain old sandpaper. It isn't a BAD product, but it isn't a necessary one either.

    MONEY SAVER (03-Mar-11)

    I think this product was designed to be a money saver. All you have to replace is the sand paper and you will always have the block piece.

    Not bad! (03-Jan-09)

    I do like this other than the smell... the rubber part just stinks! It works well though.

  • It's ok, but not all that (12-Nov-08)

    I have this and honestly I can buy foam sanding blocks at my local hardware for half the price and I find I like them better. The ones I get have a fine on one side and more coarse on the other. Then they come in several different "grits". Anyway easier on my hands and cheaper...works for me!
