Hi Guys

I have a wooden ceiling panel that has some adhesive residue on it that needs removing. I have tried using a razor scraper to get it off, but that has scraped the wood a little.

What's the best technique to get it off? I'm thinking sanding. In which case:

- What type of sanding paper is it best to use?

- I guess I'll then have to restain the sanded area. How difficult will it be to find the matching woodstain and how do I go about finding it?

Finally, the wooden panel is a tongue and groove panel used for covering ceilings. How difficult do you think it would be to buy a new one if I needed to?

Many thanks

Easily replaced, looks like wood glue so need a sharp wood chisel, acetone won't touch it.

I've already tried a sharp scraper on it, and this is the residue.

What are the forum's thoughts on sanding the remainder off? Would this be a bad idea as it would then be difficult to restore the finish??
