How to Use Sandpaper Properly

Sandpaper is used to prep surfaces for painting and staining. If you’ve never used sandpaper before, this important tool can be a little trickier than it may seem. This video will show you techniques that will help. 

Don’t try to use sandpaper sheets flat on surfaces with just your hand. Instead, wrap the sandpaper around a block of wood or other handheld implement and staple it in place. This will help you get the traction you need to sand effectively. Be sure to choose coarse sandpaper for smoothing wood and fine sandpaper for painted surfaces.
