“S” is for Sanding …
S … is for Sanding
Back in the day, all I used was flat sandpaper. Was there anything else? Not according to my dad!
Then I purchased a sanding block and thought …. this is the best thing ever! Am I right?! So much more control and easier on the hands.
As time went on … I purchased an electric sander … Woo Hoo, I was in the big time now!!! 🙂 This was not the exact model, as it was so long ago, I don’t even remember anything but the shape and color. Mine was black and silver, and had a rectangular base, but you get the idea!
Three years ago, I started to refinish a few things and really did need a new sander to help with the work. Miss Precious was about to be born and I had furniture that needed to be done for her nursery. My next sander purchase was this …
Sorry Ryobi, although I am in love with your other products … this one was NOT my fave. In fact, this was about the time I started reading blogs on various subjects. Mainly, sanding and refinishing furniture. I think Centsational Girl was the blog I read about the orbital sander. (That she uses one and how much she loved it.) If you are looking for a great website that does orbital sander reviews … I have the place. This is what Orbital Sander Reviews had to say about the one I wanted to buy.
This is the one I purchased …
and, it is the one I am using to “Restore” my trunk! I HIGHLY recommend it!
(I do not work for, nor am I paid in any way by this company. Just my own opinions)
What kind of sander do you use? Do you recommend it? Why?
Have a great Saturday!
