Like all the above, it takes a variety of tools to sand the fuzzies determined by the wood, size, detail, etc.
Since no one makes just the right tool, like most shops, mine takes a bunch.
My first choice is an enclosed sand blaster using small grain silica sand.
My second preferred choice is a mop sander for larger areas. These remove the fuss without altering the detail.
Others for fine detail and tight corners include Dremel type tools operated with a pneumatic pen tool [similar to a dentist drill].
These include stainless steel and brass wheels, flexible finger sanding wheels, and an assortment of cutting burrs.
Last but sometimes necessary choice 'elbow grease' with a variety of items with grit or teeth [mini files], emery boards, and dental picks.
As I am certain everyone will agree, the most important and hardest tool to find is patience!
