Are you after the New York loft look? In this video Bob Rist, a tool expert, teaches you how to operate a floor sander, so you too can remove those old carpets and get the most out of your wooden floors.
- Start off sanding the floor with a coarse sand paper, these are the ones with the lower numbers on the back.
- With the coarser sheets, sand diagonally across the boards to get out some of the imperfections.
- When you reach the end of a line, lift up the sander. If you don’t do this, you will have a little dip at the end of each line where you stopped momentarily before coming back in the other direction.
