to seal or not to seal, this is the question
In addition to my previous post, I have a question about sealing.
I have unfinished 3/4" red oak strips that I am about to sand. Before applying the oil polyurethane, I am wondering if it is necessary to apply a `sealer'.
I don't see the need for staining, just wonder if I need to seal or can get good results by going right to the polyurethane.
Also, should I apply 2 or 3 coats of polyurethane?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
You should probably keep related posts together in one thread, it makes it easier to follow, but:
Poly will seal well enough for most applications.
Oak is a hardwood and, generally, precludes a sealer which are for used for gaining an even finish on softwoods.
I'm really getting tired of all of this poly stuff. Sorry for the outburst but I'm old school. A floor should age and get character, not look like new forever.
