Richard Rider says:

Thank you Jonathan. Enjoy your videos…cheers…rr from France

Have you tried the SandNet discs from Diablo? https://www.homedepot.com/p/Diablo-5-in-80-Grit-SandNet-Disc-with-Free-Application-Pad-20-Pack-DND050080H20P/304732722 The ones I have bought in the past are tan though. I'm not sure if there is a difference between the red and tan versions. They're the only 5 inch sanding disc I will buy. They never clog. You don't have to worry about lining up holes. They also work great for sanding on the lathe. And thanks for the pigtailing explanation!

Maddux Woodworks says:

Thanks for the info, and great work Jonathan.

SE Collectiv says:

Great tips! My number one sanding tip is to buy that Ridgid oscillating sander I’ve only had mine a short while and I’ve used it so much!

StudioJLT says:

And then there’s sanding on a lathe, which is a whole nuther ball of yarn

Fearsome Warrior says:

I'd love to see shoulder plane information. I'm planning on picking up the medium Vertias one soon.

Walter Rider says:

thank you Katz good stuff .to me at times sanding is cathartic. i k r

ww s says:

Hullo young man, Sanding is an art. I always finish any timber using the finest of sandpaper by thumb and fingers. It should feel like when you gently  stroke your wife's face, and if you have never had that feeling, you have not lived yet.

Brads Workbench says:

On Amazon i can get a pack from 80-320 that’s 100 sheets of the gold for less than $20! Comes out to like .15 cents a sheet. Even at Harbor Freight you’re having to pay close to .50 cents a sheet

Joseph Blazei says:

I actually love sanding, I practically hand sand everything for finishing (rough sanding is done with power sanders). It is quite therapeutic feeling the wood change beneath your hands.

Rock K. says:

While speaking about the card scraper, you mentioned those finishes that were rewetting – such as lacquer or shellac. Were you implying that you prefer to use the card scraper for those between coat finishes? I'm thinking, this would be a great option, because the between coat sanding with those finishes always appear to gunk up the sandpaper quickly. I am also fearful of messing up the finish when sanding between coats…

On another note, I lean towards ordering online mostly through Amazon. Any particular reason you have your own store site over theirs? I plan to order your dovetail jig soon, and am reluctant to give out credit card info to too many sites.. Thanks for the great videos!

Franks DIY says:

Thanks for the pointers

Robert Mielke says:

You might want to try a smoother bench plane that leaves a surface ready to apply finish. Nobody sands anymore!

Ian Duh says:

+1 for card scraper

Devin Mchorse says:

First!

Thank you so much for explaining “pigtailing” that has always eluded me even when I asked the guy who apprenticed me!
