A part of my summerhouse is to be used as a shed so is very narrow (1.5m x 2.5m)
the floor is oak plank laid across the width ( to match the summerhouse)
I have stripped it bare by using the floor sander across the grain and used the floor sander( across the grain) to get to 80grit.
I then used a belt sander with 80 grit going along the grain and then finished with a random orbital sander.

Last part will be with 120 grit.
I wondered if it would be better to follow the method above, just use either the belt or the orbital or even try the floor edge sander ( which is a bit of a pig to control to be honest.

Many thanks in advance

For a small area I'd have hired an edge sander and done the edges and corners with a random orbit sander and a delta sander/multitool

I have an edge sander which, as I said in the original post, was a pig to control and didnt seem to give even results.
