Default Removing burrs on the project backside

How does everyone do it? The first project I did all by small file and sandpaper. It finished up nice but took a looong time. The last one I used a small flap wheel on a dremel tool. It was faster but a little too aggressive and I still needed to do some hand sanding to clean it up. Any tips or tricks you have to offer? Thanks!

1/4" Baltic birch ply cut with FD 2/0 spiral reverse blades. No, just a palm sander

Spirals will make a lot of burs. By the way, I use the same blade. You can try to do a stack cut with 1/8" under it. That will put the burs on the back of the 1/8 not your 1/4. Probably do not want to use the best 1/8 bb you can find, just some plain on 1/4 ply. Just ask yourself if the cost of the 1/8 to be tossed worth not having to spend a lot of time removing the burs on the keeper piece.

The other thing is to invest in a MAC mop. A bit pricey but saves a ton of time.

Break it in when you first get it and use it gently YES I even use it on fretwork.

Do you have to use spirals? I do use them for certain projects but rarely.

I also use a MAC mop. I have one that is well used an it removes the fuzzies without damaging the project.

I use a PORTER-CABLE 5-Inch Random Orbit Sander with 120 grit. I finish with
2 coats of deft semi- gloss laquer spray then sand with 320, and do one more coat of deft. I sand On a Non-Slip Router Mat.

I am sold on the sanding mop for back side fuzzy removal. I demonstrated last year at the state fair using one to cleanup both sides of thin fretwork ornaments as well as intarsia.

After I'm done cutting I sand the back with a palm sander then I burn the edges with a small butane torch. The torch works great and really seems to open the smallest cuts very nice. This is the one I have.

I keep a scrap of sand paper by the saw and each time I take the work off the saw I check the back of the work and very carefully sand off a few of the fuzzies. Works pretty good and not all the areas need the sanding. Take care.
