I’m getting ready to assemble a box I’m building from curly maple with curly walnut accents. Before doing so, it occurred to me that I might want to sand the pieces prior to assembly. Here’s what I’m thinking:
1. RO-sand the box pieces with 80, 120, 180 and 220 grit before assembling them.
Are there reasons to not pre-sand? The corner joints are keyed miters, if that makes a difference…. I’ve also thought of scraping instead of sanding, but since I don’t have a lot of experience with a scraper, I’m going to stick with sanding for now.
