What grit sandpaper should I use to sand wood?
Use 100-grit for all-purpose sanding and 120 or 180 for the finest finish, but follow power-tool sanding with hand sanding. Power tools leave hidden scratches that show up later. And always sand parallel to the grain. Sanding across the grain with any kind of sandpaper will inevitably cause cross-grain scratches.
What is the roughest sandpaper you can use?
For example, 60-grit sandpaper is the roughest sandpaper typically used on wood. Use it for extremely rough surfaces when wood has dips, gouges, splinters or loose fibers. It removes wood fast.
What grade of sandpaper do you use on baseboards?
Wood surfaces such as baseboards can get pretty roughed up over time. If you decide to repaint the wood surface, you can smooth it out using medium-grade sandpaper such as 120-grit. Once you have gone over the surface, switch to a finer grade such as 180-grit and go over the surface again.
What is sandpaper used for on paper?
A simple product that combines sand or similar abrasive material on the strong backing paper, sandpaper is used to smooth surfaces, remove rust or paint, and can prepare a surface as well. Sandpaper comes in different abrasive amounts called grit. The grit of the sandpaper may range from coarse and rough to nearly smooth.
