Lets start with 17,204, that is the number of LJ’s right now.
Thank you all.
I have just finished 3 projects, by finished I mean put the final coat of poly on them (pictures coming soon(saturday)).
I want to thank all of you, I may have not asked any questions about finishing, but I have read all of yours.
Thanks to the people who ask, and thanks to the people that take the time to answer.
Some things I have learned about finishing.
First coat, thin it down a little, it gives you an even and smooth base to build on.
Second and third coats, take your time, small areas, you don’t have to finish the whole thing before it starts to tack up.
Only a light 220 or 320 sanding is needed, just to remove the nibs that have built up and level the surface.
Final coat, thin it a little, you wont leave streaks (brush, or underwear marks), it dries quickly and less dust can settle before it dries.
These three projects have the best finishes I have ever accomplished, so to the entire community of Lumber Jocks,
Thank You one and all.
