If you’re building new cabinets or refinishing existing ones, a vital go simultaneously is sanding. Sanding relaxes sharp edges and levels out rough spots on uncovered wood or after a requisition of stain, which can raise the wood grain. Because cabinet doors are frequently part of a home’s kitchen or bathroom configuration, sanding them well before painting or varnishing will handle a door that is smooth to the touch.
- Remove the cabinet door from the cabinet base and remove all hardware, incorporating any handles or pivots.
- Sand the even once more of the cabinet door and huge level ranges on the front of the cabinet door with a hand-held orbital sander. This sort of sander features a circle that pivots at a rapid and in the meantime the whole plate moves in modest rounds to forestall wood scratches.
- Place a medium/fine gravel sanding plate on the orbital sander and turn the force on before placing the level parcel of the sanding circle lightly on the surface of the cabinet door.
- Move the sander continually over the surface of the wood, toward the wood grain, yet don’t use force. Let the force of the sander do the work.
- Switch to a fine-gravel sanding circle after a starting sanding removes the rough regions.
- Hand sand building items on the front of a decorative cabinet door with a froth sanding square. Accessible from hardware and wood stores, these sanding squares are adaptable and have a slight gravel surface, making them gainful for sanding bends and wood trim.
- Sand just with the grain of the wood and use a light force when sanding with a sanding square.
- Run your fingers over the edges of the cabinet door and along the front and the once more to discover any rough spots and sand them before applying stain, varnish or paint.
