We have a pine half log cabin that was unfortunately sealed with Thompson water seal 12yrs ago and has been recoated 2 times since. The last recoat was in 2003. We have used ABR finish stripper to remove the sealer and a garden hose and pressure washer to clean it off. It has a lot of fuzz now and we are thinking it needs to be sanded. Any recommendations of how to do this best? We plan to apply Sikkens log and siding sealer after sanding. Is that a good choice? Realistically how often does this

You should sand it with orbital sanders with 40 grit pads. You do not want to get it too smooth if you are going to use Sikkens. It will require a maintenance coat about every 4 years.
