The Sanding is Finally Done!!

Yep, that’s right!  I’ve finally sanded all the way up to 1000 grit!  I compiled a neat little album of closeup pictures of all the sandings all the way from 60 grit to 400 grit.  It’s really neat how smooth the surface gets.

The interesting thing is that, after about 400 grit, I could feel a difference, but I couldn’t capture the difference in pictures.  So that’s why I stopped the pictures at 400 grit!  The final pen stand looks amazing though.  While there are some surface problems still, I am hoping that the stain will help make it look a little better.  My plan is to stain and urethane it.  Maybe the surface problems will create an interesting distressed look… who knows!  That’s the next step, and I will hopefully get that done soon, so keep checking back to see the final result!
