pre-stain red oak before staining?


Minwax is mainly used for furniture. Even when staining I will only go to 150 grit before staining. Then 320 grit between finish coats. I will never go above 100 grit on flooring. If you go to much above 100 grit you will get to much of a shine and it will show every scratch and dent that occurs.

OK, I've just applied the last coat of polyurethane
How should I finish now: leave it as is, use some steelwool #0000, sand paper (which grit?)
Thanks
