There are as many ways to stain, fill, seal, and finish stocks as there are stockmakers. How I do it:
Wet sand/whisker
Let dry
Stain (spirit stains)
Fine sanding
Fill (wet sand with finish or use filler/sealer)
Fine sanding
Fine sanding
Buff if desired

If you use water-based stain, do not fine sand after applying the stain until you have several coats of finish on the wood.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
