Hey Guys and Gals,
Anybody had any issues with putting an oil based poly over an oil based gel stain? Using General finishes oil gel in Java and also bought the oil based clear. Staining oak ply and oak trim, let it set on there a minute and then wiped it off trying blend it with pressure to get the effect I want. I have heard some people having issues with reactivation of the gel stain when trying to clearcoat it. Also, should I sand the stain before clearcoating or is it alright to he clear over it without sanding? As always your input is appreciated.
