Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village, in this video clip I will be talking about sanding. Now there is a couple of things to think about when sanding first off since we have already go over this with our flush cut rotor bit there is little to no wood that needs to be sanded it off. However, we still want to go over it and sand off if there is any glue, maybe if there is any pencil lines. However, when we do sand you have to keep in mind that you have veneer on one side and real wood on the other. The veneer is like a 30 second of a inch thick. So if you sand to much you are going to sand of that veneer and it is going to look very bad. I'm going to be using a radium orbit sander what that will do that will allow me to sand really quickly and get a real nice even sanding.
