Yes… More Sanding
I put the last coat of poly on the caracases and drawer interiors, had dinner, and then we both went out to the shop and did not finish til’ around 11:30 p.m.
Kristin sands the drawer faces.
She is just pretending to enjoy this.
Two Step Staining
If you saw our video on staining douglas fir.. you know that we use a washcoat of mineral spirits and boiled linseed oil followed by mahogany gel stain.
To be exact.. I apply the washcoat, Kristin applies the stain, I wipe the excess stain.
Picasso adds her touch.
Door with one coat of stain.
We learned to let the stain sit for quite a while so that it flashes up and removes evenly.

Help Us Please
After staining we noticed one door with a nasty cross grain scatch going across six inches.
Does anyone have advice how to repair this? The scratches of course are darker.
Can we just sand and stain this area and restain? Do we have to sand the whole thing?
Lumberjocks… Help! Please..
