« Part 17: Safety Rails Part 18 of Bunk Beds: XL Twin over Queen; Cherry and Walnut series Part 19: Coat #1 at last! »

It’s a shopful, as you’ll see in these images. Finish is 50% Natural Watco, 50% Sherwin Williams satin polyurethane varnish. I really like this combination of products.

It took two of us four hours to put on the first coat. There are a lot of surfaces there! We were also chasing the occasional heretofore invisible glue stain, the random ding, the “How’d we miss this?” planer chatter, that sort of thing.

Next coats will be significantly less time. Three total, plus wax.
