First of all, I am new to the site and let me just say, it is an awesome resource! Thanks to all who contribute and keep it up and running.
I did a search, trying to find an answer to my question, but had no luck specifically, so here goes:
I have probably finished 100 sets of new alder cabinets over the years, but in every single case, I have conditioned and stained them, prior to sealing/sanding/lacquering. I have a project now where the customer wants the crown and bottom rail trim stained (easy enough), but want the rest natural/clear.
My question is: Do I need to condition the boxes/drawers/doors that are not getting stained? Will the clear sanding sealer and clear lacquer give a nice uniform finish, without the blotchiness you see if you stain without conditioner?
Thanks in advance
