In this video, we will learn how to sand a wooden pallet

When you find a wooden pallet you use to work with, they are often in bad condition

so sanding them down is often necessary to make some smoother and to give them a more even surface

to sand down a wooden pallet, you will need:

An electrical detail sander, or a flat sanding block and a manual triangular sander, sandpaper with varying grit sizes: 40, 80, 120. A brush, a vacuum and a soft cloth, two wooden supports, safety gloves and an anti-dust face mask

To succesfully sand your wood, you will need to use sandpaper of varying grit sizes, going from a more coarse, to a more fine grit size. The coarser grit size will get rid of any large imperfections in the wood, while the finer grit size will allow for a smoother finish

Always sand in a well-ventilated room, or otherwise, outdoors.

Begin sanding the areas that are most difficult to access using a detail sander and sandpaper of grit size "40"

If you don't have an electric detail sander,

Find a block of wood and wrap some sandpaper around it, and then use it to sand down the areas of wood which are difficult to access

Then sand the slats with the sanding block, or an electric sander

Brush down your wood to remove any dust

Turn over and continue sanding on the underside of the pallet

Continue sanding down using the 80 (medium grit size) sandpaper to get rid of any marks made from the 40 (coarse grit size) sandpaper

Do the same switching to the 120 (fine grit size) sandpaper which will enable you to achieve an even smoother finish

Vacuum away any dust, and finish off by wiping down your pallet with a damp cloth

Your pallet is now ready to be painted, stained or varnished
