Answer: 
If you're staining new, bare wood, it's always a good idea to hit it lightly w 180-grit sandpaper first. After applying the stain, you can top coat with PU, lacquer, shellac, etc; after that first coat, you can 'knock' down any raised grain with 220; wipe the dust and then apply the second and final coat of topcoat.

[That's not how I do it ... that's what the instructions suggest. I always apply two coats of stain, regardless of product claims ... knocking down the raised grain between coats with a pass of 220.]
Now, if you don't sand the new wood, your chances of seeing "blotches" increases ... unless your use a "conditioner" before the first coat of stain. Read Less

Answer: 
In most cases, yes. We strongly recommend applying a test patch to ensure compatibility of another coating on Varathane Premium Wood Stain. To complete your wood project and for best protection, finish with any Varathane Polyurethane depending on your project needs. http://www.homedepot.com/s/varathane%2520polyurethane?NCNI-5

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grey wood The coverage was excellent, but much less transparent than I would have liked. Not much of the wood grain shows through on new wood but it was great on old barn wood. October 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Blue/gray I wanted to achieve a weathered look on some picture frames I made out of pine. I went online and looked at different stains and this one had the best reviews. I applied stain on some scrap pieces to see what it looked like before I applied it on the frames. Glad I did because the color was definitely a blue/gray, not the color on the can. I was very disappointed because I read good reviews on the product. September 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brilliant Color This product is easy to understand and use. The color looks amazing bringing the wood to life. I recommend this color and product to everyone that loves to work with wood. I plan to use this stain on other woods because I simply loved the affects it has with the wood and how it brings out the best parts of the wood to life. September 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by more like a paint than a stain The stain looks more like a paint than a stain. I thought it would be thinner and show the grain of the wood more like a regular stain but we still like it. It covered well. My husband and friend painted 2 coats on all of our cabinets in about 4/5 hours August 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome I love how this color of stain turned out! At first I didn't think I was going to like it..... But once it dried it turned out to be exactly what I wanted! Very happy with this product. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy staining This was the easiest stain I have ever used. It was simple to get variations of the color I was looking for in just one coat. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stain Great stain...went easy and left a great look. Very happy. December 13, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Color is VERY different When I applied the first coat it looked blue as it dried it does look better however it looks nothing like the pictures May 24, 2016
