Wooden Handle for Espresso Portafilter


Step 5: Sand Smooth

Picture of Sand Smooth
Once you've shaped the handle it's time to do the fine sanding.  

We loaded 120, 180 and then 220 grit sanding discs onto the random orbital sander and sanded everything smooth.  The final sanding was done by hand with some 400 grit paper. 

We only sanded the handle with such fine paper because it was going to be something which we touched on a daily basis - there's something about the texture of finely sanded wood - it's milky smooth and really quite nice.
