Can I sand again?

Just made a couple of cutting boards as Christmas gifts and have a question as this is only my second attempt at end grain boards.... I sanded everything to 220 and all was great and smooth as glass. I applied a few coats mineral oil and the next morning it seems as if the grain has raised a bit and you can feel the seams when running a hand over the board. Question is can I resand after applying the oil or will it cause more trouble than if fixes? Thanks in advance for you thoughts.

You should be fine, in fact get some 320 and 400 grit wet or dry paper and sand with some mineral oil.

I don't use mineral oil, but the product I use I typically "wet sand" to 1000 grit, makes for a "baby butt" smooth surface.

You can sand again however expect to go through a lot of sandpaper. The mineral oil will gum up on the paper pretty bad.

Just to follow up..... I ran the orbital sander over them with 220 and while it gummed up about 3 sheets in the process they are smooth glass now and ready to be wrapped and put under the tree.


Thanks to all for the feed back.

What you might do in the future is wipe the wood down with a damp cloth and let it dry every time you go to a grit change on sanding. Then when you go to finish, the finish shouldn't raise the grain because you already did that with water.

Thanks Steve, I will be making another one after the first of the year and will give that a try.
