Do you need to sand raw wood before using gel stain??
If gel stain sits on top of the wood, and the wood has been recently planed, does it need to be sanded?
this is with exception to some of the open grain/end grain or defects from the planing.
What would be the benefit in gel stain’s case?
This would save me a lot of time if not, and would solve many of my inconsistency issues with this doug fir grain and stain
