Greetings all.

I was wondering if anyone has tried such a thing, and if so, which attachment did you use, any tricks you might pass on? I want these to be about 1-2" square on the base, and equilateral.

Thanks

Adam Smith

I hate to say it, but the Dremel may not be practical here.  Don't get me wrong, I am a big time Dremel Fan!   I would start with a 2" square block.  Sand each side down, a little at a time, rotating the block one way, sanding the piece of wood at the same angle, so that all of the sides are uniform.

When you are finished, you should be pretty close to your desired dimensions.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the reply. You may be right. I may have to find another way to do it, because I need a whole bunch of them.

Assuming you have a table saw, you might consider investing in a sanding disc for your saw.  I bought a Craftsman 10 inch sanding disc for my Jet table saw.  The disc is very thick steel with sandpaper glued to both sides.  Two different grits.  Anyway, the disc obviously replaces your saw blade.  You can use your mitre gauge to position the pieces.  Sands real fast, too.  The thick steel plate prevents the disc from flexing and you're turning at about 6,000 RPM.  I think I spent about $16 on this rascal and I've used it a lot.  Good luck.
