I’m not sure of the exact age of the piece but the planing mill said it has almost no sap (or they wouldn’t have taken the job) and it was “pretty dry”. The environment that I’m in has been 90-100 degrees for 5 months with no rain or moisture. Any piece (unless recently cut) is going to be pretty dry.

Would a orbital sander starting at 180 and moving through the grits to 320 be the best course? Perhaps finishing with a hand sand of 400?
