Typical shop overhead lighting is usually soft, which hides shadows and therefore hides sanding scratches.


Quick tip: When you sand, turn OFF the main overhead lights. Instead, sand under a single hard light - positioned at an angle – so that you can see the sanding scratches much more clearly.

Since doing this, I’ve been able to identify sanding issues before it’s too late.

I posted a very quick video about this. It’s in a hotel room but the illustration works.
