I have a large (500sf) wood deck that needs to be re-stained. I started by pressure washing the deck but I used a turbo tip on my power washer and caused many of the boards to splinter. This weekend I rented a floor sander and got my butt kicked to the point that I just returned it. No matter what grit paper I used, it was just impossible to get the job started let alone completed. That being said, what is the best way to get the splinters off so that I have a smooth surface to stain? I can't see myself on the floor with an orbital hand sander for 2 days smoothing the deck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
