Next Tony sands the water down on the surface with a high number grit sanding paper. When he has finished he will have sanded the surface with 200, 400, and 600 grit papers. Like I said, a perfectionist. (This is known in sanding circles as "going through the grits," a term I learned about on a Woodzone.com page called, "Sandpaper 101." Thanks, internet!)
Then he takes a dab of this old school paste wax and smoothes it into the surface.
Here is Greg and Tony sanding, waxing, and polishing our cutting table to a high shine. On Saturday.
