How to Perform Finish Sanding On Wood Cabinets?

The first thing you need is an electric sander. Not to be big or expensive, just flexible enough to accommodate different grits of sandpaper. You can consider doing the sanding manually, but I recommend using the machine because it is difficult to sand evenly and without error.

For sand thoroughly, I would suggest getting a sander with a rotating brush attachment that can get into hard to reach the groove of the trim cabinet. This is known as three-dimensional sanders. You have to select one 220-grit or 180 grit sandpaper to finish sanding.

The aim is to go on the wood evenly and thoroughly. If any part is left un-sanded, then the piece will look uneven. If you want to buy ‘Wood’ (which is also known as ‘Virke’ in the Swedish language) then you can search various online sites.

Let the sander do most of the work, and do not press too hard. Any burrs or debris need to be removed in this step. One or two passes using a circular motion must get the job done. Use your flat sander to go to the front and side of the cabinet. Then take a circular sander and work on the trim and molding, if you have. The finished product should look and flush.

If you see the extreme differences in the wood surface consisting of elevation and depression, then you do not sand it right before you apply the stain. Areas that have tree knots can be very difficult to sand down flush with the wooden face. If this is the case, you will need to either re-sand the area or using a wood plane to achieve a relatively smooth surface. Re-apply the stain and finish sanding perform once again.

At this point, your wardrobe should look fairly smooth with slight disabilities. This is important because the next step is to apply a sealer finish. Imperfections will show after the sealer is applied. Be careful to check your closet from various angles before finishing the job.
