What will you be wetting it with? Unless you’re using a solvent, there’s no worry, since there won’t be any airborne particles.

Edit: I just saw that you have a project uploaded for the table. Really nice work. Regarding rubbing it out, what is your goal? A satiny luster?

There will be absolutely no hazard from the cured finish, though there might be some mess. If you choose to use a solvent as the wetting agent (don’t do that, use distilled water), you will have fumes from that.

Thanks for the responses! I am planning to use soapy water as the wetting agent. I can deal with mess, but I live in San Antonio, and it is HOT in my garage (which doubles as my shop).

LOL, yeah, here in Tucson this time of year, that wet sanding would turn dry in about 2 minutes.

Looking forward to seeing the result.
