I suppose the unasked question here is what sort of microplastic waste is generated by abrasion?


Also a spoon and cup carver, and honestly never sand the finished items. If your blades are sharp, they leave a much better finish than abrasives. Heard a dude on YouTube comment that abrasives are much more appropriate for making your edges sharp than making your surface smooth. I grind mine through 10k grit and strop frequently while carving, and get a nice, shiny and finished surface.


You know what else is better than sandpaper?


I don’t know how she did it, but Rachel got poison ivy on her brain. The only way she could scratch it was if she thought about sandpaper.
