We dig reader Beano_t’s work because of pictures like this. He doesn’t star in his own high-buck TV show; he just makes things better around the house –- a lot. His latest project involved a little sanding in the dining room.
The large drum sander pictured on the left helped out with the mammoth task of taking the oak floor down to a refinishable state — Beano obviously had the system down pretty well to get a nice, uniform-looking floor. I’ve always been rather terrified of creating a hill-laden mess. I hear from others that the giant sanders aren’t really that hard to use once you get used to ’em, but I’d say the jury’s still out on that if it’s me behind the drum.
The only thing left now is to seal/stain it, so we wonder if Beano is going dark or light in his treatment.
