I know that several of you have used Timbermate as a grain filler-my first usage is on a Grebe MU-1 cabinet. I have to admit to putting it on way to heavily and spending much more time sanding than I should have. So what now? directly to stain-in my case Mohawk very dark walnut mixed with 15% black, I will then finish with the very dark walnut lacquer. While the wood is mahogany, the finish was a very dark brown/black-at least on my unit, so should I use a sealer of some kind before the stain (oil ) or after stain but before lacquer.

Thx for the help
Abe

After sanding the grain filler off you are ready for some color, stain your cabinet over the grain filler, do all you toning . Now you can seal the cabinet, I use Mohawk EZ vinyl clear sealer . Once that has dried you can sand that smooth using 240 grit or finer , careful not to burn thru into your stained wood. Now your ready for the lacquer top coats of your choice, normally a satin finish.

Thx for the direction Fred-will pick up the stain and sealer tomorrow and get on with it later in the week. Might post some pics as I go, but this is a small job compared to what many of you do.

Timbermate is a good product, because it can work with all finishes.
Easy to sand , mix and match filler, mixes up nice and thin .
Are you laying nitro? And a wash coat?
