Sanding Issues

Total noob question:Sometimes when i sand ply, and go to wipe off the excess dust my rags catch on the wood and leave little fibers hooked in there. I found a great way to remove them is with steel wool, but why? Why does that happen? I use an disc sander and sand to 220, then i hand sand one more time.any comments appreciated.NOOB ALERT!See More

Wood for Retaining wall

Anyone know of a good wood that is not treated that can be used for a retaining wall? I dont need to get 1000years of out of it.Right below will be a garden which is why I dont want any leaching from pre-treated lumber (arsnic or copper).I am also willing to treat with a natural oil, and dont mind doing so every year or what ever it takes.The wall will about 3 feet high-ish. Any wood knowledgeable people who can chime in, I would greatly appreciate!See More
