Topic tags/keywords: gateway skill sand paper sanding

6/12/11

Responses to a question about sanding, posted on our LumberJocks' Facebook page, received responses that showed the general starting grit for sanding to be around the 100 mark, with one response being as low as 36.

A great comment, by Timothy Dorcas, pointed out that the grits used depends on what project is being created.

What are your tips/strategies/rules regarding the sandpaper used on woodworking projects?

  • what grit do you start with, and when
  • what grit do you end with, and when
  • how do you use sand paper
  • what shouldn’t you do when sanding
  • what are those good habits to develop
  • and?
