Cool

Poly pine door or not?


Dumb question. New six panel interior solid pine door, stained it, now would you put polyurethane over the stain or is just the stain sufficient?

I think you want something over the stain. Tung oil would be my choice. Easy to apply, easy to repair.

thanks for the link bob, but I'm not a first timer using stain or topcoat. I just wasn't sure about doors. I was leaning towards thinking the door should have a little more protection than just the stain, being soft wood and all. Thanks ratherbe.

The poly will keep the door from expanding and contracting during seasonal changes. These changes can keep the door from closing and will open the seams between the stiles and rails.
Just do all 6 sides.
