With the exception of a little hand sanding, I use this Dewalt Random Orbital Sander https://amzn.to/3iJVxzx

To remove router lines, excess epoxy, and/or hardened epoxy drips, I use this conversion grinder attachment on my 4 1/2 grinder and attach low grit metal sanding disks. https://amzn.to/3pueJ5Y​​
