A couple of weeks ago, my brother came over and I had him bring his end-grain cutting board with him for a tune up. I ended up sanding it down a bit and oiling it up for him, but it took me way too long and got me to thinking about sanding kit and equipment. I used to live a lot abroad so I never was able to accumulate wood working tools, but I would like to get some basic materials to handle knife-related chores. Here are some of the tasks I would like to do: (1) Re-surface cutting boards that may be damaged, old etc. (2) Round the spine on blades (3) Buffing/polishing/refinishing scratched or abused blades Does anyone have suggestions on some good sanding kit/equipment, micro-meshes, paper etc. to get these jobs done. I have nothing, so all ideas are welcome. Thanks in advance. k.
