Where are almost finished sanding all the interior wood in our 1905 house. We have selected a red oak stain for the Douglas Fir, but are unsure of how to apply it, seal it, etc. We have read many articles on the use of shellac or lacquer and polyurethane.
We are also confused about a sealer, versus a conditioner. Is there a method or steps that should be followed in order to obtain a beautiful wood finish. We have a lot of wood in the house and are also worried about the chemicals being safe for small childeren living in the house.
