Routing in a confined space

Recommended Posts

A friend wants me to build him a cornhole set. He wants the wood to show and a nice finish. I trimmed some 1/2” good quality ply board with cherry and milled some 2x4s down to about 1’25” x 2.50”. It makes for a heavy and awkward carry. I want to add grips, but I’ve already assembled the tops and frames. I don’t want handles that add to the width, so I want to rout a hand grip in the sides. Access to the free side is no worry, but how would you recommend that I smooth the inside portion of the grip? My handle consists of four holes drilled/routed in a small arc that will accommodate a hand grip.

 

I’m thinking a Dremel with a sanding drum, but I’m not sure that I can get a uniform finish with that on the inside of the frame.

What is mentioned above is a good way to go.  

Mentioning the Dremel leads me to believe that you don't have a spindle sander.  You used to be able to find in some hardware stores a sanding drum that was made to be chucked up in a drill press or standard drill motor.  These were longer then what you would have for your Dremel.
