Re: Finish question for Red OaK

Been several years but I had a small table (I believe it was white oak) in a custom van that had several stains, scratches etc. I sanded it and found it had a lot of open pores! Robert Dresdner had recommended a water based filler from an outfit based in California.

The filler was basically transparent and after drying took stain well. As I remember I applied 2 or 3 coats until all pores were filled. I then stained the oak to match the other trim in the van and sprayed a couple of coats of Minwax poly, rubbing it out between and after the last coat.

After waxing it looked good as long as I owned the van.
