Lowes and home depot sell this primer called zinsser it seals the wood very well.I spray one coat sand with 600 grit and then paint.You can also take wood putty spread it lightly then smooth it with water let it dry sand with 600 grit prime and then paint.Hope this helps.
I use Minwax Polyurethane in a spray can just apply 2 coats as directed on can, lightly sand and then prime, wet sand, Paint and Clearcoat then wet sand and polish for a perfect finish. the Polyurethane acts as a sealer so the primer wont soak in to the wood. Hope that helps

I also use the Polyurethane method on my painted cars and it works very well. Lately I've be going the decal route on my league cars as it is a quicker process and after a light sanding, see Spacewalker's video on decal prep, and polish the caes come out silky smooth. Just my two cents.
