Nice work, my friend. I had never seen red juniper before. Beautiful stuff. It’s beautifully finished, really glossy. I guess what I don’t understand is the need to switch to water-based for one coat. Poly is poly as I understand, only the carrier-oil or water is different. I wouldn’t think one would seal any better than the other
and since you’re using so many coats of oil-based anyway, why not avoid the risk and simply stay with oil? Mind, this is not criticism in any way. You have impressed me with your finishing skills. That piece is BEAUTIFULLY done. I bow before you. By the way, I looked at your other projects, and I have to say that I wish I had the ability to see the potential in a piece that you have. I can build from plans, but I have no vision to see that way. Carvers too. Wow.
