Can you please tell me if I should use this to sand an alder wooden table before painting it?
The table is en route. I've only seen it online. It's a kit that I bought which needs to be put together, so I am guessing it's already somewhat smooth.
I sleep during the day and I'm starting to get drousy now, so I don't think that I'll be able to make it to the hardware store and the hardware store is a little Mop & Pop shop whose hours change depending upon their moods and not by what the sign on the door says. And the table should arrive Thursday or Friday, so when by the time I go down to the package room to get it, the hardware store will probably be closed for the day. So I am hoping someone can tell me whether or not the sandpaper I have is the right one?
Also, if it is the right one, is there a different tectured one which would work even better?
Please correct me if I'm wrong: I won't need to first sand with medium- grain sandpaper seeing that the table must already be somewhat smooth since it's coming from a furniture seller (it's a table that cabinet makers and dot.com businesses buy (they don't make it themselves) and then sell to the public.
