Hi Y'all!

I'm trying to get rid of the stain on my log home.  it's a dark, yucky color.

I first stained the home 15 years ago.  I began with a coat of linseed oil.  Next was a coat of the stain.  I finished with a clear top coat.

I'd like to get back to the original pine - colored wood.

I've read about just about every technique possible: media blasting, pressure washing, using the Turbo Plane blade, using the osborn brush, chemical strippers.

I haven't read about sanding.  Does this work?  If so, what is your preferred method of sanding.  BTW, my logs are flat.

Thank you ahead of time for giving me the benefit of your schooling (from the school of hrd knocks!)

Just get a good sander and TONS! of paper. Then you get a truckload of elbow grease and you combine them. After a considerable amount of time, house will be good as new. There are tons of pics and videos on my social media and website of us doing it. We are waking up this morning drinking coffee, getting ready to climb up 30 ft up and do it all day today. Like Nike says , Just do it!
