Furniture Staining Techniques

I'm building 2 desks made of oak and oak veneer. When researching my options for staining, I found a brochure from MinWax that suggests using a pre-stain product. Is this step needed? Initially my approach would be to sand, stain, and apply a clear finish. Any additional suggestions?

Min-wax pre-stain is for soft woods.

I dont like min wax stain of anykind. Pre stain No not nesassry!Unless you use min wax. Check with your local paint store they can recomend what use/to do best. Porter has some exterior sealer that i used both on outside oak doors and on entieror oak floors and steps and let me tell you its some bad stuff to hold up on a floor.High gloss that lasts.I dont remember the number or name right now but it was i think 28 dollars a gallon.Just stay away from cheap stains and sealers and you will be fine.

I say agin MIN WAX Sucks!!!!! ok i feel better.LOL
