The ROG Battle Station
With the 1” brush and mini roller setup I applied the first coat of primer and let it dry thoroughly. Used the 1” brush to cut in all of the corners and edges with a thin layer of primer then follow through with the sponge mini roller with even slow passes until you have covered the area. Note make sure not to apply too much pressure to the roller since this will cause roller tracks in the paint.
After that I repeated the sanding process removing any blemishes from the brush or paint passes. Repeated the process with primer and sanding until I had two smooth coats of primer sealing the oak and creating a good base for the paint to adhere. After which I wiped it down again with a dry cloth to remove any dust. The black foam rollers applied a very smooth coat and required much less sanding than expected.
