Great tip – thanks for sharing – I’ve wound up re-doing large sections of work just to accomplish the same thing you did in a couple of minutes. Much appreciated.

Thanks Huck a great idea.
I’ve never stained wood.
You say that you sand to 150g, then what do you do for the finish?

I like Jamie don’t use stain, but I think I am asking the same thing as Jamie here: after you do the quick tip sanding with the stain, then do you go back and apply the stain uniformly over the entire piece and proceed as you would in a normal stained finish?
