  1. I just tried using a cabinet scraper, but I am a novice with that...created some scratches. So I used 120grit to take out those scratches and proved that I AM creating pigtails in the crotchwood walnut with 120 grit. So, 150grit will be my forseeable future!
  2. Thank you all for your input! It is solid wood. Will be a fold down table. ART when it is up.
  3. Thanks, but I have broken the rules and created a spiral pattern so I cannot effectively put it through a planer, drum sander, hand sanding with a block or use card scrapers easily because I end up scratching the boards that are at 90 degrees to each other.
  4. I have pigtails in my very hard crotchwood walnut table. I need to remove them so I can finish this project. I have sanded it several times at 120grit with my ETS 125 sander and there are still pigtails. I recently increased the sander speed to 5 of 6. My CT Mini has 5 settings. Should I put it on the lowest setting or the second from lowest setting? Is it better to keep sanding at 120 grit (forever) or go back to 100 to try to remove the pigtails? I am keeping the sander level, not pushing on it and moving slowly (though not quite as slow as 1" per second).
