« Part 16: Finished raising the rest of the panels Part 17 of Hope Chest for Daughter #2 series Part 18: Hand sanding & sealing the panels »

Santa gave me a multi-tool for Christmas and I used a Home Depot gift card to buy some accessories for it. I picked up a Dremel profile sanding kit. Turns out the radius of one of the profiles matches the concave section of my raised panel Ogee, so I set up and sanded the end grain. Started with 120 grit and then stepped up to 180.

Here’s the kit….

Here’s the profile I used…

and here’s my setup on my downdraft TS outfeed table…

This really tamed the rough end grain with just a half dozen passes of each grit.

The long grain came off the router very smooth, so I’m not sure if I want to hit it with the 180 or not.

This was my first time using the DeWalt multi tool and I really like the trigger, as it makes it easy to slowly ramp up the variable speed.

Thanks for looking in & Happy Trails :^)
