Something I’ve dreamt of doing for about 15 years. I inherited this chest of drawer, apparently cherry wood but I can’t tell, from my mother. Her parents had sanding the lead paint off it and revarnished after inheriting it from their parents. It’s wrecked and the sides have bowed so the inner struts don’t fit any more, have started by disassembling everything and hand sanding the the first drawer. The wood underneath is really soft. Will reglue and maybe tack in the sides and all joints and give it a good varnish. Am excited about this one. #makedoandmend#diy#woodworking#wood#woodwork#sandpaper#furniture#furnituredesign#refurbishedfurniture#heirloom#valuelessheirloom#excited
Wow!!! I just rocked 🤘 this treasure chest glue-up with my new @tigersharkabrasives sanding discs. I typically start with a 40 grit to remove excess material and glue, and then move onto a 60 grit. However, their 60 grit is so good I was able to eliminate a step and save time. As you can see, after 20 minutes of use this thing still looks brand new. These are going to save me a lot of money. Check them out...great product.
GUESS THAT GRIT!!!!!!
An impromptu game where I post a pic of a current project and you guess at what stage of sanding I’m in. So let’s go! .
To make it worth your participation the folks @acmetools have offered up one of their new Acme Shirts and a Hat! Sick! Give them a follow for being awesome! .
Here are the grit options I have in my shop:
40 . 80 . 100 . 120 . 150 . 180 . 220 . 320 . 500 . 800 . 1000 . 2000 . 3000 . 4000
Hints: this is black walnut, using a @festool_usa Rotex 150 and I’ll be finishing this project in @rubiomonocoatusa
That is plenty of help and should narrow it down a ton. Good luck! And thanks Acme for playing along. Who ever guesses right will be put in a bucket and a random person will win. US and Canada insta is not a part of this GAW. .

I'm going to be in trouble when Jess see's this photo of Spencer up on the lounge, however she's been away for nearly two weeks now and I think he is missing her. #my grandpuppy #puppy sitting #sandpaper kisses
I told Angi that I purchased some sandpaper and it reminded me of her. She looked at me confused and said how does sandpaper remind you of me. So I said because it say “EXTRA FINE” on it. She was not impressed. 😆😆😆. #3m#sandpaper#extrafine
