How to Sand Detailed Wood on an Antique Couch
I used regular 60-grit sand paper to get most of the lacquer and paint off by hand, but I could get into the corners or in any of the details. And then I used the Dremel to help remove it from the recesses.
I used the 431 Sanding Band 60 Grit to start working on some areas. This works great, but I couldn’t get to some of the angles. It worked really well for straight lines and edging, but they don’t last long when the project is so large!

I’m still working on stripping the paint, so I’m not quite done sanding everything yet.
