New Wood To prepare new wood for painting, first sand down the door with a fine sand paper following the grain, any sharp edges should be slightly rounded off. Wipe the door down with a cloth and white spirit to remove any dust. Apply knotting to any knots, this will stop any resin leaking from the wood and spoiling the finish. Use a suitable wood filler to repair any joints or cracks, leaving the filler slightly proud and then rubbing down with fine sand paper. Wipe the door down with a clean cloth and white spirit to remove all dust and debris.
