I have 2 questions. We have a 1980's log home. Pine is all I know. The previous owner had painted the exterior which we removed by hand and refinished with a product called Australian Timber Oil purchased at Lowe's. It is flaking/chipping. 1. Do we need to sand it again and start over or clean and apply a new coat? On the interior we have done nothing. It is time. I would like to sand the surface of the logs as they are rough and hard to keep clean. Then seal with just a clear sealer. 2. What


Yes, you will need to sand the exterior again. Then call Dave at Timeless Wood Care Products for the right materials for interior and exterior. His number is 800-564-2987.
