how to finish something? trydell coffee table
PDF versionPDF version

total newbie. I was able to put together the trydell coffee table (the version with pocket holes). I was actually impressed I managed to do it....

anyway, now that it is assembled, how do I finish it? I'd like to stain it.

Do I sand now? I did not pre-sand anything before assembling it.
if I want to distress it with a chain, no I distress it first and then sand? or sand and then distress?

when staining, do I sand in between coats?

this is the table
