One of the most rewarding things throughout any project is putting the finish on and seeing that wood for what it really is.

I used an spray-on, aerosol, clear varathane for the finish on this project. Took several coats (8) but it was worth it in the end. So satisfying =)

After the finish was all dried, I waxed it by hand.

-- There's nothing like the feel of a wood shop.

Sweet, Josh.
