Did a little refinishing on some poly-boards. As you guys ITK know, even straight bleach on the boards every night doesn't thwart some build up over time. Orbital sander w/60 grit & then 150 grit to finish, cleaned up years of buildup nicely, and keeps the Health Department off your back for any gouges.

Please be sure to use a decent dust mask when you do that. I can't begin to imagine how bad that poly dust would be for your lungs.

Looks very good.

PARADOX <> You know, I was strapped for time, and I raced to fit the project in during a slow period that could have turned busy at any moment. I had called the facility manager & asked for a set up workspace. I broke right in on the boards & about midway, like an epiphany, I said to myself, "this is not good!"

At that point, I was already balls deep so I stayed in it. Reality is I'm already going to die young... so WTF.

I don't know man? I can think of MANY much more worthy things to live dangerously over than plastic cutting boards. :o ;)
