My arms might fall off
This next week was non the less as interesting as all the rest of them have been. Once the barrels are pretty much finished at this point now comes the sanding. Using a circular sander I got the pleasant opportunity of sanding between each ring on the barrel. This takes a couple times around each space between the rings and as you can imagine holding a vibrating sander for hours at a time doing a repetitive motion can be extremely tiring. I couldn't believe how smooth the barrels turned out though when I was done. This was a painful week but ill be back next week expecting to learn more.
