I have now... let's see if it works. :)

That's 30 boards, believe it or not. Each board got about an hour of sanding yesterday and today (2 of us working). Drum sanded with 50/50 grit, then 80/120 grit, then belt sanded with 100, 120, 150, then random orbited with 180. My sinuses have annular rings now...

By the way, if anyone has a spare wide belt sander with multiple, oscillating drums that they'd like to donate to the cause, I'd be very grateful. Or you can pick one up used for a mere $20-30k. Mkaythankssomuch.

Branding tonight, then overnight oil baths, then UPS.

By the way, the top of the taller stack contains the aforementioned 'Baby Boards.' Some of them are in the 12" X 12" range, so they aren't so wee, after all.

John

Nice! I didn't know you were so busy in the shop this week, I'd have come over!

I still think that walnut is the best.
