"Fuzziness" due to not enough sanding?
I am, and have been, working on a slab of cypress. A little background: the slab is approx 2'x3'. I sanded it through the grits (80,100,120,150,180,220,320,400,600) because I wanted a glossy finish. I am using an oil based finish, and it will work even sanding to 600. I am using a ROS.
Referring to the pictures (which make it look a bit worse then it actually looks to me)...I don't see swirl marks, but what I am describing as a "fuzziness" for lack of a better word. If you look at the piece from the side, it looks like a piece of glass. Glossy and reflective. But when you look at it from above you see this fuzziness. I'm wondering if this is the wood, or from a lack of sanding enough? Since it's glossy, if it is from lack of sanding I'm guessing that I didnt sand enough on a lower grit, and then kept going, so I'm seeing marks from the lower grit, but still getting the glossiness from the higher grits?
