I'm belt sanding the last 1/3 of the floor before I have to use the orbit sander. Then I get to slap the first coat of finish on (after I clean up, clean the floor with denatured alcohol, and let that evap). Hopefully, that will go on tomorrow.

What Else Are You Making?

You did that all with a belt sander? You didn't hire one of those big floor sanders? Isn't your back killing you?

It's lovely. It has flowers on the inside. If you make weak tea, it will be properly what Norwegians call "blomster te" - flower tea, because you can see the flowers through the tea.

The finishing was done with a belt sander and then an orbital (orbit?) on my hands and knees...I could've rented one of those floor sanders, but the last time I did, it was like trying to control a bucking bronco...or maybe that was the edge sander...I'm done with the sanding, waiting for the floor expert to give me the go-ahead tomorrow to slap the first coat of finish on. TL, s/one who goes to the trouble of milling the wood, etc., do you really think that person would rent a floor sander?
