Sanding stairs
 
Hi all,

What is the best way to sand hardwood covered stairs? The part you step on (the tread) and more importantly, the closed riser?

Do you use a palm sander or a scraper or is there a special tool?

The stairs have a finish on them.

I never done it but would think it would be a mixture of Hand sanding and Orbital Sander sanding...

Hand sand, scraping, orbital, whatever gets the job done with the least amount of work.

Most stair finishers use a scraper to get most or all then finish with an orbital and hand sanding.
