what grit sand paper would you start with and can I use a random orbital on these?

NO! Do not use a powered sander! You’ll sand through the thin veneer in an instant. Sand by hand using a sanding block.


Because the veneer (outside ply) of the plywood is thin, don’t use coarse sandpaper. If it were me, I’d  likely use 150 grit sandpaper. Buy the good stuff, not cheap sandpaper.

Thanks for all the help. I haven’t sanded yet but did a once over with the Murphy’s oil soap and that cleared up/lessened a lot of the stains!


It did make the grain pop a bit as others said. I have some fine steel wool and will try that.
