Rob, I’m no expert on this, but I think you need to seal the wood that would come in contact with the grout. I’m thinking you should use shellac. Not much grout should touch the wood, I would think only the grout lines may. When you are ready to actually apply the grout to the tile, which if you are like, is very messy, you do want to mask off the wood.

I would do the wood finishing before grouting. Use blue painters tape to mask it off. Make sure the finish is good and dry first.

Hope this helps. I’m sure others will chime in.
