If you are going to sand oil stain, make sure to seal it before you sand. You will have higher risk of sanding the color off.

Usually I apply at least depending the color I want, 2-3 coats of stain. I do not sand between coats. After the coats I apply a top coat. Then I sand.

Same thing with water based stain, stain what color you want. Then apply sealcoat then sand.
