Until I got to my varnishing finish coats, I hardly had to sand anything, ever! On my butt joints, and on ANY later overlapping glass layers, these scrapers would taper the edge of the glass for the next layer or epoxy coat so they were almost invisible. I got them thru Woodcraft, 1-800-225-1153. But now our local Eagle Hardware carries them, also. They saved me many dusty hours.
