Homemade pastel jig

Doing the jig for pastels
FSMRT0117_05
Next time you need ground-up pastel chalk for a project, first make this pastel jig. You will need the following items: drywall screen, ¼" or larger wood square dowels, and super glue.

First, cut and build your wood strips to the desired frame size. I made a 3½" x 1½" frame to fit the size of the sanding screen that I had. Super glue the frame together and spray with accelerator.

Next, run a bead of super glue gel around the frame perimeter, lay the screen over the glue bead, and spray with accelerator. Then trim off the overhanging screen material.

No more clogged sanding sticks.
