« Part 11: Construction is done.... Now for the sanding.... Part 12 of Bunk Beds for the Boys series Part 13: Still Finishing...End Is Near »

Well, last week I decided not to do an update since I was to the stage of sanding and everything had slowed down quite a bit. One interesting thing did happen. I sanded so much that the tip of my pointer finger on my right hand had the skin worn so thin on it that it would just break open and start bleeding. Thank goodness that is better now.

The big thing to report is that the sanding will be done tomorrow night. With everything sanded, it will be time to start painting and finishing. I expect that to take at least a couple of weeks with all that I have to get done, but we will see.

Sorry, not much to report. Just thought I would note the milestone for tomorrow. I will keep you updated on the painting and finishing progress.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the update. Sanding is one of those “chores” that are necessary but produce little, if any, excitement. Most woodworkers dread this part of the process. But once you start sanding you are entering the home stretch.

Keep up posted on your progress.

thanks rob. I agree with Scott. Sanding is one of the most dreaded parts of woodworking and especially on a big project like yours it takes a while to do it right. its coming along great and i can’t wait to see the finished product.

Have your say...
