Problems w/ sanding painted wood
Hi folks - I'm in the process of refinishing a painted wood end table. I had to use a belt-sander to remove the top coat of paint as well as the underlayer of original stain. I want to get down to bare wood so that I can ultimately re-stain the top a different shade. The problem that you can see in the attached photo is that only portions of the wood grain can be seen. What's happening in the other areas where the wood grain is not showing? Do I need to sand more in those areas? Did I sand too much in those areas? Those areas seems to feel 'fuzzy' as well, which I know sounds weird. The portions where you can see the wood grain feel hard. I would great appreciate any feedback that readers can offer me. Thank you so much!
