Question Sanded Vs Raw wood

I would use whatever it is that I have access to use.

A grinder would work, but you have to be very careful with it as the cut is very aggressive. However, since I gather that you really are not liiking for great accurace it would probably be the least time consuming.

Just about any sanding machine or planer will work. For fast snading use large grit paper and gradually go to smaller grit.

Large grit = lower sand paper number right?
for eg
100 = Large grit
and
600 = fine grit


right?

You are correct about the progression of the grit numbers but you likely won't need to go any finer than about 150 to 200. I would recommend start with 100 and finish up with 150 (150 should be smooth enough unless you really want "baby's butt smooth then go to 200).

Thumbs up Don't complicate things.

If your wood is a standard 2X4, it doesn't require a great deal of sanding. I just hand sanded my frame with fine grit and used a high quality outdoor acrylic stain on my project. It has a slightly glossy look and lasted for years(7 to date). I put on two coats for coverage and there have never been any slivers poking out. I touched up sanded in a couple of places between coats. Good luck and good for you for trying.
