One of the most challenging aspects about sanding your doors is dealing with panels, ornaments and other intricate details that get in the way. You need a good sander if you want to do it without any problems though! With both unmounted doors laying down, as well as those still mounted on hinges. There are plenty of sanders for every type of door.
What Kind of Sander is Best for Doors?
Doors are an essential part of any home and they need sanding, unfortunately it can be difficult to find the perfect tool for this task. The first thing that you will want is a stationary belt sander with variable speed control because there’s no way we’re going to get all those high spots out without some help from our machine.
Thereafter though…the design of doors themselves comes into play: Are they completely flat or do I have panels present such as windows? What kind overall shape am i dealing with here-simple rounded edges versus complex curves requiring compound paper surfaces adjustment depending on type (sanding grade)of wood used inside frame cavities.
Most people want a lightweight, nimble and easy to use one handed sander. If your doors have a lot of detail – then one of the “mouse” sanders will work best. If your doors have a large flat surface – then you might want to look at one of the palm sanders that use 1/4 or 1/3 sheets of sandpaper.
Just take your time, don’t rush the process, and you will end up with the perfect doors.
