So I'm in the process of building a kitchen table. I'm using pine, and am wondering about how to finish it. I was thinking of using a pre stain wood conditioner, then 2-3 coats of stain, then a sanding sealer, after that I'm not so sure. I read about using 4-5 coats of General Arm R Seal, but I was looking at their website and the place they have listed that sells it is over 60 miles away. Any other ideas? I'm planning on using a couple light coats of briwax on top of everything.
I've never really done much finishing other than just staining, so any ideas or thoughts are greatly appreciated!!
