06: Sanding Bowl Halves – Part 5

The following video demonstrates the method used to match the bowl halves together by sanding them a disc sander. Make sure that the table and the disc are 90 degrees to each other. I normally use a 60-grit or courser abrasive disc. If you cannot seem to get the halves to fit perfectly together; with the disc sander turned off, hold the disc so that it will not turn with one hand and rub the bowl half back and forth. Continue this process until the two halves fit perfectly without any light showing through a the glue joint when you hold it up to the light source.
