Believe it or not I really like 24 and 50 grit paper for thicknessing wild figure that would chip out in the planer. These grits are also great for removing paint and grunge from reclaimed wood (not to mention the 50 year accumulation of bird crap on my dad’s old barn wood).

My daughter really liked the 24 grit look and we used it on all the woodwork in her clinic. It has a weathered texture.

On the other end, I don’t use finer than 120 as it just loads up/burns too easily.
