Sanding the Scars

The crown moulding is taking longer than expected, mostly because of the annoying scars on the curved portion of the wood, scars that were created when I pushed the wood over the saw at an angle. Every little imperfect move I made, every breath I took, amplified into gouges and cuts, and these must be sanded out, and some are pretty deep. I can't use the power sander because of the curve, so this all must be done by hand.

I'm not complaining--I love the swish, swish of sandpaper on wood. My problem now is a little CIA-engineered, zen master, secret agent puppy who needs my constant attention. Explain to me how a dog can speak 6 languages, do calculus, send emails, but still cannot resist chewing on shoes, towels, chair legs, table legs, hands, feet, etc. Well, Cheryl won't have to go to school tomorrow, so maybe I can do some sanding.
