Can someone give me guidance. I know i have to
2. Seal it (urethane)
I dont need to sand it, do I?? Can I seal it with a brush on type urethane?
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.
