Sanding Mistakes to Avoid With a Random Orbit Sander | Basic Woodworking Skills

In the real world, the joints are not always as perfect as in all Instagram posts. So, suppose you put two plates together that are not exactly the same.

It's a little weird and a few minutes of 60 grit will soften it up. Turn on your sander and secure it.

Yes, both sides are aligned. But now you have a shell-shaped plate because you neglected the center. And if that was the bottom of a box or something, now it's a bar.

There is nothing wrong with smoothing uneven joints, just make sure to sand evenly across the entire length of the board. Making a pencil mark on the board can help. Make it disappear evenly.

In fact, whenever you need to check if something is flat, use the table saw. This is probably the flattest surface in your tent. So if there are no swings, you can blame the floor for sure.

In this video, you will find five silly sanding mistakes I have made and how to avoid them.
