Tools for the Trade

I’m not a huge fan of sanding, it’s usually a pain and the feel of sandpaper just makes me cringe. It’s like nails on a chalkboard to me.

No longer!

The HB picked me up one of these babies

thumb_thumbOh isn’t it cute!

Now to find some goodies to test this baby out on!

Thank you HB!!

Nikki,

I have a Henkel Harris highboy that is at least 80 years old. I have been thinking about sanding it down but I don't know if I can tackle it!

Do you just want to refinish it or paint it a color? I've found there are a few good primers that don't require sanding.

Gahh, I have wanted one of those mouse sander things for ages. I do not currently have a project for it...hehe ...but how useful it would be. SO sniffed and said, a what?

I know, I don't have anything to sand down 'right now' but I figure something will come up on the to do list soon.
