I recommend that you DO NOT use any stain on a wood species. If they want a color of sorts convince them to go for a wood that accents there desire.
I don’t like to color any of my projects, I’d rather use a darker or lighter wood.
I sand plywood to a 220g only, mostly for a faux panel or whtevr you do, if I go any furthr; 320g, I get a plastic look.
As far as hardwood goes it depends, but I start 150/maybe 120, 150g usually because my blades cut so smooth…
Then I go 180g, clean good, then 220g softly and clean up good afterward; vacuum and tack-cloth, all the while the Air Filter above me is doing it’s thing. Finish away.
