I own a log home in central WA. I purchased it 2 years ago.
Previous owner applied PENOFIN finish right before selling this home.
Now on south side I notice that the finish broke down and my logs look black on the top and it feels like there is no finish left.
I was thinking to refinish it by myself.
My question is: Can I use grinder/orbital sander to remove a layer of wood to expose fresh fibers instead of blasting?
If yes, what sand paper, and stain would you recommend.
I would recommend using side grinder with a Dewalt 4" rubber backer and 5" grinding disc (50 grit). Both can be purchased from Home Depot to remove old finish. You may also need to go over with a orbital sander to remove swirl marks wit ha 40 grit pad. Lots of manual labor this way.
My recommendation for stain is Life Line Ultra 2 and Advanced Topcoat. Call 800-564-2987 to purchase.
