    I built a sled this morning based on the guy at woodworkweb.com. I used blue tape to hold the shims in place and some double sided tape to help hold the slab in place. It worked well.

    I have been starting at 60 grit and going until it feels smooth, then moving to 80, 120, and sometime 180. I have sanded with Festool 125 ROS until the swirls go away,...
