So, still raining. And still sanding. I sanded only for an hour this time, trying to get that laminate (or wood glue) coating off the top.
I used a dremel for the details- went faster than i thought, but i was deathly afraid i would make a grove too deep too soon. I got lucky.
Thats a photograph of my 'work shop'. I back my dads car out and sand for a while.
