This week I had the chance to begin to sand my front, back, and both sides. It required a lot of focus but I was happy with the result. First Ms. Giroux handed me a dust mask, when I put it on, tons of hot air rushed into my face once I breathed. To make matters worse, once I put my goggles on, they immediately fogged up. Even though I thought this would slow me down, it made me stronger. After waiting for 10 minutes, it was my turn to sand on the belt sander. When I turned it on, it seemed very imitating because of its loud, roaring noise. I was ready, I put on my glasses and my mask and pushed my wood against the machine. It worked, I was overwhelmed with joy. Overall this was a great experience for me.
