    No, don't do that. Sand only. Finish up with #600 and then apply whatever finish you want.

    I wouldn't try that as sand or bead blasting will eat away the softer part of the wood & make a real mess of a good piece of wood. Use a scraper and a block of wood or hard rubber to wrap the sandpaper around. Yes I know it's more work but it's better than a ruined stock. Ross Puls

    Blasting is what you do for that weathered, barn siding look. Works best if the wood is good and wet.
