fussy, thanks again for your advice. Here’s the link to the project I’m referring to (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/35030). You are right in that the end grain of my slab is the face of my piece, and the first coat of poly did give me the color results I wanted but didn’t seal it enough for my liking. I really want the color differences to actually show because of the type of work I do. In fact, the more differences there are, the more I like it. I read someplace that glue size woulld seal end grain so I tried it and didn’t like the results at all because it dried unevenly and some areas of the end grain sealed while others didn’t seal at all giving that “blotchy” look that everyone tries to avoid. Also, I do build up the finish until I get the sheen I want, but I’m just concerned about down the road if the oil on water based will have problems. I use wipe on as much as possible on all my projects. Thanks again for your adivice.
