« Part 6: The Finish Begins Part 7 of Grinder Sculpting series Part 8: Time for some fabric »

I decided to go with just the tung oil finish on this one. I may wax and buff it at the end, I’ll wait to see if it needs it or not. I have pictures of the second and third coats here. I gave each coat at least 24 hours to dry then sanded with 400 and then reapplied the finish.

Second coat

Third coat


I don’t know how many coats I will do total, it depends on how it builds. I’ll see ya next time.

Thanks. I hope to have it finished in a couple more days. These finishes can drag out a bit much for my liking but they do look nice when they are done right.

Very nice.You are joining the ranks of ‘the master box sculptors’. Impatience is what always wrecks my finishes and you’re too far along to wreck this one so be careful.

and andy you know that every time i cut corners to speed things up its always disaster, its best to walk away for a bit and just think about it before making hasty decisions that wreck a project, i look at the whole picture then work on it in small sections always keeping in mind how one thing will effect another, kinda like playing chess or in my case checkers cuz i dont know how to play chess.
