I just happened to remember something. High temp kiln drying “sets” the sap. If your wood came from a pallet, it is highly likely that it was never kiln dried, and it continues to bleed.

Your only solution might be to let it set a while after cutting and sanding to see what happens. Might be good to put it outside in the sun and accelerate the process. If any sap rears its ugly head, cut it out and keep on trucking.
