A: Happy to help. Varathane Classic Wood Stain is designed for application to properly sanded bare wood. Soft woods such as pine, fir, or maple require a wood conditioner, use Varathane Wood Conditioner before staining. Oak is a hard wood, remove any existing finishes with sandpaper or stripper. Prepare bare wood for staining by sanding in the direction of the grain. Begin with #120 grit sandpaper and progress though #150, #180 and #220 grits. Before staining, remove all sanding dust and dirt with a vacuum, tack cloth, or rag dampened with mineral spirits. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-8-oz-Wood-Conditioner-342085/305587137 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6
