    How To: Tips & Techniques

    Sand for a Smooth Finish
    Before beginning any wood finishing project, be sure to sand the wood smooth, using #220 grit sandpaper, following the direction of the wood grain and remove all sanding dust.

    Extra Protection for Your Project.

    For additional protection, without adding color, add a coat of any Minwax® clear protective finish, according to label instructions.                                                          

    Temperature Matters!

    The best temperature to apply a stain and finish is between 13 C and 30 C. Cooler temperatures will slow down the dry time and hotter temperatures will speed up the dry time.
