Sanding Through Layers to Match a Finish
By carefully sanding through one layer at a time, you can learn something about how the finish was applied. March 8, 2007
From contributor M:
This sample shows you how sanding off each layer of a finish will tell you how it was finished. When you make up your own samples, you then follow the way it was built up. It gives you a way of learning how to finish and learn about colors and materials, and it gives you the chance to make changes if they are needed in the sample.
