Prepare the wood for finishing:
Sand down the wood to remove paint, dirt, and grease and get a smooth surface.
Inspect the wood for any damaged and clean the surface with a rag.
Apply the wood stain using a rag or a brush. You may apply several costs for good colour.
For finishing, choose a clear wood finish with a high level of gloss. Apply the finish with a natural bristle brush. Once it has dried, sand out the dry particles to get a smooth surface.
