This video is the third in a series dedicated to providing tips about wood finishing. In this video we cover raising wood grain to improve the final finish and smoothness.
When you apply a finish to a piece of wood, the grain raises up as it absorbs the moisture from the finish. This causes a rough finish that must be sanded in order to achieve the desired smoothness.
In order to avoid this issue, one can raise the grain and remove those fibres before applying the finish. This video will demonstrate a method by which that can be accomplished.
Thanks for watching. I hope you find this video helpful.
