Sofa table must be ground before painting, staining or painting. Tearing a wooden coffee table is similar to grinding much other furniture. Select a finer slip paper and repeat the process if the wood coffee table is not level enough to suit your purposes.
Select the appropriate grain size sandpaper for the sofa table. The harder the wood, the lower the grit number must be on your sandpaper. For example, hard maple requires a lower grit number than numbers because the count is a much softer wood than maple. A nice slip paper is used on all woods to prepare a smooth finishing surface. Don a protective mask. Grinding pipes up small particles of wood that should not be inhaled.
Grab sandpaper in your dominant hand. Make sure the smooth side is facing you and the rough, gritted side touches the starting point of the wooden coffee table. Generally, on one side of the coffee table, start working until the other is an effective way to keep track of what you have already ground. Slide forward on sandpaper, using a continuous motion. Once you have reached the end of the sofa table with sandpaper in your hand, place it at your original starting point and repeat the movement. Grinding with back and forth movements is effective as long as too much grinding is not done in one place. Too much grinding in one place results in an uneven surface. When the surface is level and free from degrees, protrusions and sores, proceed to the next section of the table.
