« Part 11: Rocking Chair - Back Brace Bent Lamination Part 12 of Time lapse Woodworking series Part 13: Apply finish to book matched live edge curly walnut coffee table »

I’m sanding a solid walnut seat with a Festool RO150. I progress through sanding grits 150, 220, 320, 400, 500 and a burnishing pad. This is about a 40minute process made into a time lapse that is about 4:30 long.

This is after I’ve ground out the seat using a kutzall carbide wheel, you can also view that process in my you tube channel.

Thanks for watching and hope you enjoy.

Great looking seat. Its cool to see the sheen develop in the wood as you move to each higher grit. I’m in the process of making a Maloof rocker right now. I have not carved out the seat yet but should get to that next week. Thanks for your posting.
