finishing a mahogany entry door
I have a mahogany entry door that is in serious need of refinishing. Through my own research it seems that sanding, staining, and then applying a spar-urethane, like Minwax Helmsman is the way to go. My brother-in-law, a one time painter, says I should sand, apply a stabilizer, such as Cedar shield, and then a tinted semi-transparant oil clear solution such as Australian Timber by Cabot. Which should I do??
