free plans: how to make a
Stamp Holder
Basic Description Here is a plan for an incredibly simple project. The minimalist design is both fun to make and functional. It's a great project if you don't have much time or material or if you are a beginner trying to gain some experience working with wood.

step:           4    

The final step is to sand all the surfaces and round off the corners. We accomplished the rounding with low grit sandpaper and proceeded to 400 grit to achieve a smooth surface. Once the sanding is complete, you are ready for finishing. In most of our project we recommend finishing oil or polyurethane, but the narrow groove is a functional surface and excess material may become a problem. For this reason we recommend using finishing oil which primarily soaks into the wood as opposed to sits on the surface. If you do use a polyurethane, for example, you will probably want to pass through the groove with your bandsaw or scrollsaw blade after the finish has dried to ensure that a clear path is maintained.
