    Spidergoat, I answered in the ONN thread but I thought of a good rule, sand with a grain of paper until you get all the scratches going the same direction and you can then tell that you have sanded the entire piece evenly with that grain before switching down to a finer paper. When you move down a paper switch directions and basically sand off all of the scratches you just made with the rougher grit until they're all going in the new direction of the finer grit. I guessed a half hour for each, I think I probably took longest shaping with the roughest grit and the finest grit. I find sanding weirdly therapeutic

    milosmomma, thanks for the advice, I'll definitely keep it in mind! Do you mean basically to sand back and forth in one direction (like left and right) with one grit and then sand perpendicular (up and down) to the scratches with the next grit? I also find sanding quite therapeutic! I'm looking to have my dad cut out some rough hair forks this summer that I can sand at leisure.

    Yes, I went diagonally just because it was more comfortable for me, but yes you want to go perpendicular to the grain before.
