True Grit: How to Choose Sandpaper Grit and Wood Finishes

The sandpaper grit you choose can make a big difference in the final look of your woodworking project. The project you are working on will determine the sandpaper grit you should use, as well as the best wood finish for the look you are trying to achieve. In this article, an experienced woodworker set out to see how coarse or fine a grit you need to use, as well as how the sanded wood looked with three different finishes, for the type of wood you are working with. The photos of his results make it clear that paying attention to sandpaper grit is worth every woodworker’s time.
