Plantation Shutters #7: Sanded with 400 grit and applied 2nd poly coat for window jambs

Ahhh…I feel better now. Much better results after sanding with 400 grit (didnt have anything in the 300 range), vacuuming, and HVLP applying a 2nd coat of 100% poly (instead of my first coat of 15% water & 85% poly). Went a little heavier this time around as well. These are things I have to learn. I do have “Understanding Wood Finishing: How to Select and Apply the Right Finish” by Bob Flexner flexner coming in a couple days which should help. I do see 2 or 3 small “runs” buy may let them be since these are the inside window jambs and not the actual casings (which will be next up).May not need a 3rd coat. Will see after 24hour drying time.
