Today I took the great step and sawed off the large woodblocks from the legs.
At first I sand the piece with several grades of sandpaper for a smooth and even finish of the wood.
Then I apply 2 coats of pore-filler. I use a product from Graupner called GlatFix. It is a cellulose-based porefiller and it can be coloured with spitit bases stains if necessery. A light sanding between the layers.
When the dope has dried about 24 hours I all faces with grade 000 steelwool.
