BGE Table ?

Morning all.

Got done staining my cypress table yesterday at about 3pm. Benn in the basement ever since (GA). How long before I can spar it, and after that coat, how long do I need to wait to apply other coast? I'd like to do 3-4 coats in all.

Thanks as always!!!!

    I waited one day between coats but look at the label for the product you are using

    It says 4-6 hours so I'll do ~5.

    One other question, is it 100% necesary to sand it? I'm doing a pre-built table and that would be a monumental task.

    Thanks!

    It's always advisable to sand any wood before you paint or stain. Between coats as well. Not what you wanted to hear I'm sure. :)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!
