Sand paper with orbital sander. What nozzle did you use on PW, should never use red or yellow.

Wrong nozzle, held it to close, or rotten wood.
Time for a random orbital sander.

yest i did use the yellow 15deg, i'll probably be using 35deg next time... So i went and sand it down w/150grit on an orbital sander. It is much better now, I'm probably use some wood filler before priming them though. Unless you guys think i should just prime it.
