Question:


Please help. I have a a frame home and we sand blasted the whole interior ceiling, then palm sanded for two weeks , grain is still open. every thing we try seems to turn very orange . oil, stains, varnish, we are not pleased, way to orange, and the open grain that seems to look dirty after we apply. what now....

Answer:

It sounds like you may have over blasted the wood. You will need to sand until smooth everywhere. Not sure what kind of wood it is, but most cedar will always come out on the orange side. Try using stains that are in the brown hew or go with a clear.
