Im currently replacing the treads and risers (risers will be painted).
two questions...Im assuming I can just poly the treads WIThOUT staining them correct? and secondly can i poly them prior to installing them? I was thinking of polying them right up until the last coat, i could then install them and apply the last coat...what do you all think? (I would already have them cut to fit prior to polying them, obviously) Im using red oak btw.
