When working with wood, either in furniture making or house building, smoothing the surface and edges of the wood is often necessary. Small sanding tools work well for this application, and there are several that works well.
Sand paper is a sanding tool. Sand paper ranges in coarseness from 40 grit (extremely coarse) to 600 grit (fine), which means you can first use a coarser sand paper to remove the rough surface of the wood, then polish it with a finer-grit paper.
The zip sander looks like it's related to a rubber duck, yet it's a useful and effective small sanding tool. It possesses a point that allows it to fit into corners, and it can be used with sand paper of various grits.
An orbital sander is a small sander that can fit into the palm of the hand. Unlike the sand paper and zip sander, it requires either a battery or electricity to run. Like the zip sander, you can put whatever grit of sand paper on it, and the paper is easy to change. Orbital sanders work well on larger surfaces, and can come with dust collectors, which help prevent sawdust from getting into the air.
The Dremel tool is handy, able to fit into small spaces as well as do detailed sanding on small pieces. The Dremel can use sand paper of various grits, which makes it versatile.
