It’s my first time doing any type of woodworking, never sanded or painted in my whole life.
I purchased this tabletop and the surface felt kind of rough, totally different from what was on DP, but anyhow. Currently, I like the colour of the tabletop but would like to go through stain process if it’s not difficult.
I currently live in an apartment and tight on budget so I just want to buy as little as possible but still get great results, so I am hoping to find some advice here.
This is the table
I looked at some poly and this came up the most for this tabletop :
For stain, I wanted dark-oak but I will have to see the colour in the store to see if I really like it
For sandpapers, which grit should I buy?
For brushes to apply poly and stain, do I need two brushes or will one brush be sufficient?
From what I gather the process is
sand -> apply -> wipe off excess and repeat.
Any tips/advices are welcome
