How to Build a Custom Computer Desk : How to Do the Final Sanding of your Custom Oak Computer Desk


Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village,
in this video clip I will be showing you how we would do our final sanding. For our final
sanding we are going to go ahead and take our belt sander sand paper around our 2×4
and we are going move it along any sharp edges in a circular motion at a angle. This is going
to break those meaning that there are not going to be sharp but they are still going
to look like they are square. The reason we do this is so that if anybody
bumped into this edge it will wouldn’t chip off and you would see that. Next we are going
to go over our edges with sand paper just to smooth them out. Lastly we are going to go over every surface
with sand paper just to make sure that any imperfections are taking out.

  1. you want to use a finer grit when doing finishing touches. he's probably using a coarser grit to knock down those edges. when you go over the surface you may want to use coarse, a medium grit, then fine grit so it's as smooth as possible. But wood this nice is already premium cut for table tops so a fine grit would be sufficient i imagine.
