I’m not sure if this is the right place to post my question, and if not, I’m sorry and will make sure I get it right the next time I post.
I’m redoing the landing on my staircase with oak tongue and grove flooring. The steps are already in and I am thinking that it would be easier for me to sand and then stain the wood before installing it. It is only about 12 square feet.
My question is about the sanding and what sander I should use. Would it be better to use the “rectangle” 1/4” paper sander – for lack of a better description – or should I be using the “round” orbital sander? What would be the advantages between one or the other?
Or, would it be better to use the belt sander?
Many thanks in advance,
