I honestly don’t know what to tell you here. At the present I’m working on a big contraption made of reclaimed Fir. Gizmodine has a blog on finishing his kitchen cabinets which are Fir. I’m using one coat of BLO thinned with a little mineral spirits let dry 48 hours. Then coat with thinned shellac. Then antique with jell stain and finish with shellac. Read Giz’s blog. No too pieces of wood will act exactly alike. If you’re doing garage doors I would think sanding to 240 would be a waste.
