How to Sand Furniture with Grooves: Tools You’ll Need
Before you start learning how to sand furniture with grooves, gather the following tools:
- Sandpaper (various grits)
- Electric sander
- Paint scraper
- Cotton swabs
- Protective gear (mask, goggles)
First, remove any paint or finish from the furniture. Use a paint scraper for this task. Make sure to wear your protective gear to avoid inhaling any particles.
Sanding the Flat Areas
Start with the flat areas of the furniture. Use an electric sander for this. Begin with a coarse-grit sandpaper and gradually move to a finer grit. Make sure to sand in the direction of the wood grain.
Sanding the Grooves
Now, let’s focus on how to sand the grooves. Use a piece of sandpaper wrapped around a cotton swab to reach into the grooves. Again, start with a coarse grit and move to a finer one. Sand in the direction of the grain.
