What type of sander do I need?
Hi. Newbie here.
I need to buy a sander, but I don't know what type. I have a number of projects that will require some hand sanding, but a power sander would be really nice. I'd also prefer something lightweight and easy to use - meaning I can't mess something up too bad.
Here are my projects:
1. Currently refinishing an old french door. Have stripped 5 coats of paint and am down to a base coat "soaked" into the wood. Need to sand and paint.
2. Pine dining room table. Will be stripping varnish (this will be another post), and waxing.
3. Oak sewing table. Will be removing unknown finish and painting.
4. Future projects include an antique dresser and bookshelf.
