Sanding, sanding, and more sanding

April 4, 2011 § Leave a comment

I’m newly motivated now that the end of the project is in sight. In this step, I’m preparing the surface for the first coat of varnish. For the first pass, I use a 60 grit sandpaper to knock down the shiny parts to the point shown on the left side of the picture below. I’ll then use a 120 grit to achieve a uniform “milkiness”. I still have a little more sanding to do, but it’s getting close.
