First step, apply light sealer of 3 parts alcohol with one part of Seal Coat and let dry for at least an hour (this essentially eliminates the potential of blotching). 2nd step, apply Minwax Cherry Stain right out of the can and let dry overnight (24hrs. preferred). Seal with a coat of Seal Coat diluted with equal parts of alcohol and let dry at least an hour. Finish with 3 coats of polyurethane diluted with an equal part of mineral spirits allowing each coat to dry at least 8 hours. Buff down with at least 1000 grit sandpaper followed by 0000 steel wool. Apply finishing wax (Minwax works fine) with 0000 steel wool and buff.
