Step 4: Sanding
Next came the part I hate… sanding. I used a palm sender with 150 grit and rounded every sharp edge. I wanted the table to have a worn feeling on all the edges. I hand sanded all the sides to make sure it was it felt like this table has been used for 100 years. There were several imperfections in the wood deep cuts and shallow cracks. I filled these holes with a 2 part epoxy I colored with black paint. I left the old nail holes in the wood and planned on putting the old nails back in. After I got it where I wanted it I ran some 220 grit over the entire table.
