I used to live and die by sanding sticks thinking they were so convenient but experience has shown that sandpaper gives me a whole lot more control over sanding curves and corners not to mention the ability to wet-sand when necessary.

Mostly I use the 2-sided 1/8 inch thick, flexible fingernail files. When that isn't the right tool then I use sandpaper of various grits, and fine wet/dry for the final smooth surface where needed.

I use several things... but the ONE item I would not be without is the black colored, hardware store type, wet and dry sandpaper. I use a couple grits like 420 and 350...

I do use sanding sticks or nail file boards for basic flat sanding... or a Flex-I-File sometimes for sanding inside curves.
