Here is a quick couple of pictures. I am not going to get to in depth with the sanding. Basically all I did was put 80 grit on my random orbital sander(ROS) and used the edge to sand out the deep scratches form the grinder. After that I went over it by hand with 80 grit getting out the swirl marks from the ROS. After I got out most of those I took a clean rag and clean water and dampened the box to help raise the grain. Next I will work my way through 100, 120, 150, 180, and 220. I haven’t decided on what finish I am going to use yet, so when I get to that point I’ll post another episode. I have about 1.5 hours at this point. I will try to keep track how long I take sanding to give you an idea. Usually when someone asks how long it takes to sand, I simple respond with it takes as long as it takes. LOL
That last picture looks like the wet side is flat, it is just the angle that I took the picture. I just wanted a quick pic and was not real concerned with how good they were.
See you next episode.
