Step By Step Process Of Removing Sandpaper Scratches In Wood Stain
The scratches caused by the process of sanding are always awkward or obstinate, which will happen during the final sanding at the time of the sandpaper dragging perpendicular to the natural grain patterns of the wood. As soon as the stain strikes the scratch, it instantly & quickly be highly noticeable. The darker the stain, the more the scratch is drawn special attention to. One & the only best way to get rid of the scratches from an untreated or stainless wood surface is by sanding it again, but make sure to move it in the direction of the grain. You can spot sand as well as stain the area again if you put together the area encompassing the scratch with the previously stained wood. You can easily get rid of the sandpaper scratch in wood stain, provided you follow the right technique & use the right tools. Go through the below-mentioned easy step by step process carefully in order to remove the sandpaper scratches in wood stain:
- First of all, start sanding the wood in the direction of the grain, always make sure to sand parallel with the grain in a small oval-shaped area on every side of the scratch. An oscillating tool having a sanding head works exceptionally well for this task.
- The next step is to sand only in 1-inch movements forward and back over the crack using an average amount of pressure.
- After that, see the effect & progress of the sanding process as the stain begins to vanish & fade away. Bend or tilt your head down in order to make sure that the light reflects off the surface of the wood. If in case a scratch is still noticeable, keep sanding accurately & decisively over the crack as long as the scratch is gone completely.
- Now, sand the area on every side of the place where you sanded before. Bend or tilt the edges of the bare wood in a gradual way into the encompassing stained area so that there is no sharp difference or contrast from the area you sanded. Make sure to look for an oval-shaped sanding spot as soon as you are done, with bare wood in a gradual manner wedged and dwindling to stained wood.
- Finally, put or spread the stain to the sanded area with the help of a soft cloth and wipe it off. Check to find out whether the scratch has been eliminated completely or not. Sand again and spread more stain, if needed.
