    What I was starting to fear...
    Just too straight.
    Think I'll need to go back to 120, 180 just wasn't making any difference.

    TTIT is correct. If the lines are only in some spots they are probably where the grain is a bit knotty. Sometimes it is easier to remove them using a cabinet scraper very lightly. You need to sand very thoroughly, especially with the coarser grades. I sand through the grades to 800, others here go even finer.

    Hi crocy
    A quick question if you don't mind.
    I think you said one of the pieces of timber you kindly offered was suitable for the box lid.
    I assume it is the first picture here, not the second which seems quite different.
