Just wondering what others are using to seal the wood before painting and clear coating?

I most often use Devcon Two Ton epoxy thinned with some denatured alcohol so that it soaks into the wood. I sometimes use multiple dips of propionate (aka prop) dissolved in acetone.

I use good old sanding sealer from any paint store.

minwax wood hardner.. you can brush it on or dip it and let it soak. I do this after I have put in screw eyes then remove and drill ballast holes in bottom. After sealer is dry I then epoxy in my weights and screw eyes. Seems to work great.

I also use minwax wood hardener. It seems to protect the wood well, hold screw eyes better and you can sand it real fine to get a good smooth paint job.
