I sanded again with 320G, then applied the Brown Mahogany Gel Stain. Jewitt says to let it dry for 36-48 hours, but the can indicated 12-24 hours drying time. The shop is about 65° and 50% RH so I will try sanding tomorrow with 400G to see if I get any corns or not and let that be the deciding factor. I can hardly wait to see how it looks after the polyurethane dresses it up!
This pic is just at the gel stain stage; no poly yet.
Also, I am really getting anxious to complete this project. Thanks for looking.
