Dennis — I did NOT do any sanding after the initial wood preparation; nothing between coats. The first coat of AwlWood is a colored or clear primer coat; apply with a rag, and let dry for twenty-four hours. The finish coats go on well with disposable foam brushes; thin coats, with a redcoat time of about two to four hours (maybe more with higher humidity). I did ten coats on everything (six handrails and four Dorade boxes) over two days.
