When you near the end of a woodworking project you will need to make a decision about what to do with the wood. Usually this means that you will need to decide on whether or not you want to stain it, seal it, or do both. Some people will say that you only need to stain, while others will argue for sealing it only. Well, in order to make a truly informed decision in the on-going debate between stains vs. sealers, you need to really understand the differences.
Lately there has been a bit more crossover between stains and sealers. What this means is that some companies are starting to create a stain that also serves as a sealer. However, before you choose this kind of product, make sure that you carefully read the instructions and learn what the purpose is behind it. For example, you don't want to purchase a stain sealant that is designed to work only indoors and use it on something that will be outside.
