Step 2: 60 grit Sanding
By this time the table should have been moved into a well ventilated garage or shed, and sanding can begin. You will start with the 60 grit sanding paper. This paper is very coarse, and will remove most of the old stain, and all of major burn, and paint marks. Always remember to follow the grain of the wood, and never go across the grain.
Caution: Sanding makes the air very dirty. It is suggested that you wear a dust mask during sanding, and proper eye wear to prevent from any dust going into your eyes.
