Well, maybe I should stop titling this as Day _ it’s really been a few days, and I’ve gotten everything glued up, sanded, re-sanded, squared, etc.
I’m finally on the finish. I think I mentioned it last time, but I’m going with a Poly/Mineral Spirits/BLO Blend
I put 4 coats on a test board and it looked pretty good, but the wife likes things a little glossy so I tossed a quick 75% Naphtha/25% Poly just to see what it looked like. At worst I figure I can just stick with the Oil/Varnish blend.
Can I just say how annoying it is that there are little to no oil based varnishes available in CA?! It’s really frustrating! The only one I’ve been able to find is Varathane ’s Oil Based Poly at Home Depot and even then it’s pretty scarce!
Anyways Here’s a pic of the finish with 2 coats on. I hope to be done on Sunday!
