Guys I need some advice refinishing benches . I refinish dozens of benches for a client as part of their maintenance program . Our finish is great but the process is dusty for a finished space .
I am looking to invest in a festool sander with vac setup. My issue is selecting the right tool for the job. Our hand method usually includes 80 grit followed by 150. The deeper scratches usually don't come out , but the wood cleans up real well. I'm looking to perfect this process especially since they are usually done overnight and on site , needed for the next morning.
We coat them with Aqua Zar water base clean satin poly and leaves a beautiful finish that dries to the touch in minutes .
