our Fall 2021 Woodcraft
Catalog, we featured a short scoop on a Checkerboard build with one of our
interns, Nikhil Narwani. Although his only woodworking experience was in the
novice category of woodturning pens, he wanted to take this opportunity to
learn more. No better time and place to add to his resume with this experience,
than with Woodcraft and its staff of
experienced woodworkers both at the Parkersburg Woodcraft store
and from our corporate
office. You can have fun being the “King” of the workshop with this enjoyable
project build and in playing the game; it’s a win-win for everyone!
Not many people enjoy sanding. Even with powered equipment it can be hard, repetitive work. But it’s very important to have a smooth level surface on your projects. Not only does it look better when you apply the finish, it feels better to the touch. Everyone knows that you start with a low grit and work your way up.
Sandpaper is sandpaper, right? Not exactly. Each piece of sandpaper has finely (or not so
finely) ground particles of rock attached to it. The type of rock and the
substrate attaching it to the paper – and sometimes even the paper – can vary
greatly between products.
