By Gary Boutin

Tools and Supplies:
Abrasive sheets 1/4 Hook Loop 50 Grit discs

Our laundry shelf was damaged from the liquid soap we used in our washing machine. This is a simple repair and these next six post shows how this shelf will be repaired. 

This post shows that after cleaning the shelf the next step is to sand the shelf to remove any raised paint damages from the wooden shelf. 

Step 1: Fig.2 shows a Porter-Cable Random Orbit Sander kit. This is the perfect sander for this job, its compact and easy to use. Fig.2 show my sanding kit which includes the orbital sander and a range of sanding discs for any project.
