    Easiest thing you can do to finish off your refurbished games is to sand out the bottom of the cabinet. We use an orbital sander and then a corner sander to get the corners the orbital can't get. Before and after pic. Took 10 minutes to do.

    I bought a random orbit sander from Home Depot and have not used it. (decided to carpet the steps instead of re-finish them) If you are interested, feel free to PM me. Ryobi $50 model or so.

    Why didn't you sand the edges? Looks great!

    What grits do you use?

    O.K., it does look great.
    Also, that's a sign of serious obsession.

    +1 and yes...so my added comment is the only people who see that part of the Pin is my kids and that's because they crawl under there to flip the power switch...just sayin.

    Never even thought of it, great idea!

    I use a dewalt random orbit disc sander, with a B&D mouse in the corners.

    As much as I'd like a Festool setup, I'm on a budget
