In Response To: Re: Removing Polyurethane from Oak Treads (James Schooley)

Thanks for your responses. I had put one coat of oil stain as a kind of sealer on first so the grain of the oak wouldn't be so dark. After a day of drying, I put a coat of dark walnut stain on and let it dry a day or so. After that I put another coat on and waited a day. There were 4 coats of stain on the oak before we put the MinWax on. We waited a day in between coats - 3 coats were applied, then we let the treads dry for about 12-14 days before they were installed. It is a terrible mess! I, too, wonder how long the finish would have held up with wear and tear.
