I just completed building a small drop top writing desk out of maple and am getting ready to apply a finish. I am in the process of sanding before applying the final finish. I plan on using a dye with a rub on gel poly. During the sanding process I have noticed fine scratches and am having a heck of a time removing them. I have used 60-100-220 sandpaper and am not sure if I’m going to live long enough to remove all the scratches by sanding. Any suggestions or do just keep sanding?

Vernelee
As I said in my first post you won’t get much input here because this is your profile page. My guess is that you are taking to big of steps with your sanding grits if go through all of the grits in order it should make things work out much better. Depending how rough your surface is to start with 60grit then 80 then 100, 120,150,180 and finer if you want.
Your more than lightly will have to go back to the 80 grit and work your way back up through the grits. When sanding the courser grits are to get ride of the defects in you wood so you usually have to spend more time an effort when using them ,but as you get into the finer grits you should have to just make a light pass over the other grits. The other thing that can be a problem is the type of sander your using.If your using a flat pad sander it will take much longer than a Random orbital sander. If you have more questions feel free to send me a PM as outlined in my first welcoming post.
