    Good work.

    Sand along the grain direction, and work up thru the grits. 1st grit is most important, rest is just refinement.

    Also, do some google/YouTube searches for card scraper, it is what they used before sandpaper.

    Just in case you dont know Toby, and this is NOT bullshit. DO NOT put used oiled rags into a binliner or the like. Let them dry out before you bin them. Linseed oil has the ability to self combust if it heats in confined space. My bro in UK found out the hard way when his van went up in flames overnight
    Stock is looking good mate, well done.

    From wikepedia
    Spontaneous combustion[edit]Rags soaked with linseed oil stored in a pile are considered a fire hazard because they provide a large surface area for oxidation of the oil, and the oil oxidizes quickly. The oxidation of linseed oil is an exothermic reaction, which accelerates as the temperature of the rags increases. When heat accumulation exceeds the rate of heat dissipation into the environment, the temperature increases and may eventually become hot enough to make the rags spontaneously combust.[33]

    In 1991, One Meridian Plaza, a high rise in Philadelphia was severely damaged and three firefighters perished in a fire caused by linseed oil-soaked rags.[34] In 2011, a garage in Sacramento also caught fire due to the spontaneous combustion of linseed oil-soaked rags.[35]
