I’ll try to explain how I did this project:
1. I take a cutoffs, which just can’t to waste
2. Cut them into small pieces, not necessarily cubic:
3. Disks we need: 40, 120, 320 sand paper and wool disk
4. A tin and PVC stripes for soundproofing:
5. My driil. It can work for hours at speed ‘C/D’ (i have been told it could be problem for drills).
6. An IKEA stool and milled groove in it for the tin.
7. The drill mounting.
8. The tin mounted on the stool:
9. 40 grit disk and sand paper stripe on the side of the tin:
10. Every 20 minutes I stop the drill for dust removing (will make a hole for dust in the bottom, swear!)
11. After first 20 minutes:
12. After 1 hour. Time you need depends on size and density of the wood. So I start with big and hard, later add small masur birch cubes:
13. After 3 hours I change the sand disk and the side stripe to 120 Grit. Run it for 20 minutes:
14. 320 Grit for the next 20 minutes:
15. In the end of the sanding:
16. Now I use the wool disk and carnauba wax on it:
17. You can run it without a cover:
I add a little danish oil during operation – about 1/2 tea spoon.
18. After 10 minutes:
