When refinishing furniture, nothing is more rewarding than sanding back an old top and turning it into a gleaming piece of gorgeous wood. The Diamond Table (Diamond in the Rough) is a great example.
Here, the honey colored wood really set of the Mustard Buffet (Vintage Mustard Buffet).Up to now, I have been hand sanding all of my pieces. However, I just purchased a power sander from Home Depot. I already have an orbital sander but they are no good for refinishing wood tops as they leave circular marks. The Ridgid Sander sands in a straight motion with the grain – leaving no marks behind. And, at only around $60, well worth it.
I made a little YouTube video on it…Click here if you wish to see it: The Ridgid Power Sander

For those of you who also love to refinish your pieces, this may be a time saver and it certainly is an arm/shoulder saver! BTW, this is totally just my opinion and I’m not getting a penny out of it. I just wanted to share!
