If the wood is a soft wood you will need to apply a pre-conditioner first to avoid the stain from blotching. Then stain. No sanding after. apply a sealer, sand lightly to scuff the surface with 220 grit paper. Then apply two coats of poly top coat sanding in between coats.

Staining new cabinets.


Thanks BOB

here are some specifics.

I had these cabinets made professionally.

They are oak.

They are already sanded and ready for stain.

My sanding question was.

after i apply urethane

do I need to sand. then apply again?

220 grit? (if sanding required)

Thanks

urethane needs a stain then sealer then sanding then urethane then sanding then urethane. Oak will not need a pre-conditioner. Also the stain is optional.
