« Part 7: Almost done... Part 8 of Morris inspired chair series Part 9: Frustration Sets In »

Well I finally got started with some finish late today. Just wiped on the 1st coat of Watco…I’m using the natural. I like what I see but I’m not sure if I want to add some contrast or not. I also STILL have some glue spots and scratches showing. I’m planning on hitting the spots again with 220 and then doing everything with 400 before the second coat.

We didn’t get out to get foam or upholstery fabric this weekend so the final finished project is going to take at least another weekend.

I have a serious case of chair envy.

Don’t forget to stick it out in the sun. The difference in color is amazing after exposure to the old UV.

Looking good. Take care of those blemishes.
