Staining Wood: Staining and Sealing
It's important to make sure that your sealer works with the stain you've used, and with any varnish or other treatments you plan to use. Get professional advice for the best result.
In applying the sealer, it's important to get a smooth flow for even results. You may choose to sand as a last step; if so, be sure not to sand through the sealer, or your wood will not be sealed. Porous woods, especially, need sealer to maintain the look you've achieved by staining them.
