People say I’m nuts, but I start with 40g on hardwood to get the patina, scratches, and anything else off. Then you get the most from the 80, 120, 150, 180, 220.
Apply finish then sand with 320.
Another top coat, sand with 600.
wipe with 1200g after its finished.

There is no way around it.

And don’t use BLO unless you want to ruin a project. That stuff ruins every piece of wood I’ve used it on. Might as well use motor oil.
