After getting the hinges installed and fitting the doors, today I sanded the cabinet and doors to 400 grit. I hand sand 80, 120, 180, 220, 400. Lately I have started using a cabinet scraper and found I can skip the 80 and 120 grit.
Once I reach 400 grit then I switch to Gray Scotch Brite Ultra Fine Pad and a shop vac removes all the dust….all of it. The pad scrubs the dust out and protects the surface from the shop vac nozzle.
See the difference?
Next go over it with White Scotch-Brite Light Duty Cleansing Pad which burnishes the surface.
Tomorrow i hope to put a coat or two of finish on, get a french cleat made to hang the cabinet, maybe work on door knobs too.
