I started finishing parts prior to assembly because it would be impossible to do a good job getting in between the spindles. I’m trying Waterlox medium sheen for the first time and so far so good. I have about three coats on it right now and I used an extra fine nylon pad in between coats to remove high spots and dust nibs. I seems to be slow in building a film. Any one have any experience with Waterlox? It’s a wiping varnish and I’m not sure if I have used one before. Is wipe on poly a wiping varnish?
After I get all the spindles and inside faces of components finished I will start gluing up. I still have to make the pins for the reclining portion of the chair and I found a friend with an old lathe I could use. I didn’t want to just buy a dowel off the shelf. I have yet to build the ottoman but I cut enough spindles for to of them the other day. My friend that lives across the street is buying my contractor saw and I’m buying a Sawstop industrial cabinet saw. The only this I put on my Christmas list this year was gift certificates to a machinery store that I will be purchasing the saw from. So, I might be without a table saw for a while and I am trying to get far enough ahead the two ottoman and the next Morris chair that i wont need the table saw for a while. I know I will though. This might be a good opportunity to get better acquainted with my bandsaw. Have a great holiday everybody.
