Water on Oil or Oil on Water?

Can you put polyurethane on an oil base stain or is it the other way around, oil finish over a water based stain? Or doesn't it matter?

I have to agree. ALTHOUGH, my preference is not to mix. The only thing is to be sure that the below finish is cured fully and then give it another week.

Use the right tool for the job.

I have always been told not to use water based latex paints over oil. My experience bears this out. I have found that latex over oil tends to peal after time.

I thought there was a general rule for finishes, I just couldn't remember which way it was. The only reason to mix is available materials on hand. Thanks George, thanks everyone.
