Do I need to sand my wood before or after I apply a sealer?

New wood needs to be sanded to encourage the opening of the pores. If the wood was previously finished and you want to rejuvenate it, you’ll need to sand it down before applying the sealant. Before applying a sealer, all old wax or oils must be removed (even oils from the hands), and the surface must be sanded until it is completely dull with fine sandpaper. This will give the new sealer a good hold and prevent it from peeling off.
