Dirrrrty cedar deck - Sanding ideas?
Working on this greyed cedar deck which needs to be sanded because I'm putting on a translucent stain, so the deck needs to be prepped immaculately.
I am going to rent a drum sander for the surface. Is there any specifications for the drum sander that I should be aware of, like power level etc? I'm thinking of using 100 grit. Also, any tips for using it?
I am going to use an orbital sander on the rails and it looks like I am going to have to hand sand in between the rails.
I'd appreciate any input based on experience with this type of thing. Thanks!
