if the mill gave you a pretty smooth surface i would start at about 120 and go through the grits and finish at 400,you ll end up with a nice finish,or wear your hands and arms out scraping-lol. ive been wood working for 50 years and this always works well for me,check my work if you want.lumber jocks.

Then use a Orbital starting at 120 ending with 320? Want to make sure that moving through grits will eliminate swirl marks. It s pretty smooth with the exception of a few small corner areas where I ll need some 60 grit and a belt sander to get it workable.
