The choice - Armoire no stain

From my previous post, the customer decided to go with just polyurethane and not stain.

To address Teds question of “what’s wrong with stain?” Nothing at all. However if the wood is capable of displaying itself , then I prefer not to. I am just a natural kind of guy.

I am much happier with my work in this Armoire than the last one. My assembly I believe is greatly improved. I still need to work harder on finishing. More sanding. It really stands out after the poly is on.

Thanks for looking

Good job and I much prefer the natural look of the wood too! You did a great job on this one.

Glad you went with the clear coat and preserved that cool color. I used to dread sanding/finishing until Rance turned me on to Abranet. Now it is so fast that I don’t dread it at all. The drum sander to 120 before assembly saves hours of sanding as well.

I’m with the posters here. Nothing wrong with stain, or even paint, but I like wood just like it comes out of the box. Oops, off the tree, I mean.
