I build my Real Log Home, in 2000. Pine "D" shaped logs. we never did any treatment to the interier log walls. It was a wet year when we buit it, and there are still water stains on the walls. What is the best way to finally get rid of them? I was thinking sanding, and if so, what kind of sander?


Yes, sand them with an orbital sander starting with 40 grit disc's. Go back over it with 60 or 80 grit disc's and then apply a LIGHT color stain and clear coat. The best place to buy the disc's is Lowes in 25 or 50 packs. The black ones will go further but cost a little more. Call 800-564-2987 for help with the stain selection.
