Sanding curved surfaces

Sanding curved surfaces

How to sand smoothly

Sanding wood surfaces is one of the most common applications performed by DIYers. For example, to remove surface blemishes and paint residues or to prepare the wood for further surface treatment.


Here you can find out how to sand correctly, especially on curved surfaces.


Using the right tool also determines the work result. The random orbit sander is especially suitable for curved surfaces due to its round sanding plate.


Guide the sander over the wood surface slowly and without applying pressure.


When sanding natural wood, you should always sand the visible surfaces with the grain. This will achieve the best result.


First sand with coarser grit (150, 180), then with finer grit (up to 240) sanding paper. Replace used sanding paper as soon as it is worn out.


To be safe, wear protective glasses.
