Staining & Top Coating New French Door
I am going to stain a top coat a new French door made from pine. The glass has a plastic film on it that actually goes under the window frames by a very small amount (1/32”?). I am concerned that if I apply stain and wipe on 6 top coats that when I later remove the plastic film that some of the stain and top coats will tear off.
Should I remove the plastic first ahead of time and then use a razor blade scraper after staining and top coating have been done to clean up the glass?
