I tend to hurt my hands a lot, so I don't like to sand things for 10-30 minutes, also I don't have any kind of electrical sander, though I'm looking into acquiring one. This is just a shortcut I've found to avoid extensive sanding, but yes, I do find that sanded handles are a bit comfier.
Tired of sanding your wood handles for hours? If you're like me you have totally forgotten your scroll saw table can tilt
I find that ~30 degrees works the best, all that is left to do is take your block o' wood handles and cut off the edges
Just a little sanding to get rid of the burrs, and bam! easy comfy handles. This may be redundant to some, but I'm guessing I'm not the only one who hadn't figured this out yet. Flames, comments, praise?
