Thank you. First I sanded it starting with 600 and working my way to 2000. The maple was dyed with a warm oak waterbase stain then it was also sanded to a 2000 grit finish. Then came the fun part. I brushed on 6 coats of lacquer going opposite directions every time. Once they all cured, I sanded everything flat with 320 and did 4 more coats. Now it was sanded starting with 600 again and ended with 2000 and a rubbing compound. Now a coat of automotive wax and a nice, big Opus-X cigar.
