Not a full blown entry, more of a followup to part 2 but here is the night stand with 3 coats of waterlox original and 1 coat of a 75/25 mix waterlox satin/original. I knocked off the nibs after the first 3 coats with 0000 steel wool…..
I’ve also included a pic of the Solar Lux for Chico. One word of warning though. If you really want a true black piece with no thin spots etc and have a few (?!) extra bucks, use Speedball india ink for this treatment. I only used the Solar Lux because this is a prototype and I had it left over from the bookcase test. India ink requires less coats and is MUCH blacker. The only caveat is that you MUST pre-raise the grain and sand or else the waterbased india ink will do it for you!
Anyway, here are the pics…..nothing new really….
Edit: PS. I guess I should be fair to the Solar Lux, you can get a decent black from this stuff, but expect to use at least 4-5 coats minimum. Mileage may vary….
Nice medium sheen
Somehow, I managed to ding the leg :( , its still black, the flash caught the dent…..
