The Build Continued...
Clean out the hole with the spindle sander. However, you have to insert the spindle before securing the top.
Then began shaping…
Followed by sanding (this is a combination of videos and pictures).
…then some wet sanding. Nothing fancy, just 5 minutes of 600 grit after the 320 grit palm/orbital sander part of the process. Sand along the length of the core, not across the core!
…and finally polishing (this is a combination of videos and pictures as well).
@Firefly now has the finished product and is enjoying shooting it when she can steal it away from @trapperdes or so I am told. The finished product video...the video was made before the gift was sent out so it is a little old and has some informational errors in it. The text above is accurate.
Total build time, excluding camera use and dry time, about 3 hours.
