I have a log house 10 years old with Sashco bronze pine stain and Cascade sealer. My contractor is suggesting I use walnut shells instead of cob for removing the old finish. Which do you suggest and why?


Not having used walnut shells, I cannot say for sure if it is bad or good. It has a lot to do with the grit rating. I would stick with the corn cob 20/40 grit.

Corn Cob Blast....I have never seen walnut shells do as good of a job, and use both.
