I just put a coat of stain (Oil Based) on a project. Should I give it a light sanding before apply waterlox?

Thanks,

Ryan

Ryan, you do not need to sand. You might want to add a seal coat of shellac to prevent the stain from bleeding into the topcoat but I have successfully used oil base stains under a tung oil finish without sealing.

Would not recommend sanding….....you stand a good chance of changing the color density in areas. Put a sealer coat on next, then lightly sand. Good luck.

If you like using Waterlox, try mixing your stain in the Waterloc and apllying them together
