Stain/sealer for unfinished oak door?
Help! We need to quickly find a stain color for our new, unfinished oak door, but I really don't know the best staining products to even look at. The instructions for the door (a Simpson red oak door) says the first coat should be a "stain and sealer". What are the best brands for a "stain and sealer"? I realize the final coats will be the more protective coat, but right now I'm just concentrating on the staining/sealing step.
Thanks so much!
