I have been trying different techniques to cut the finish time. So far, pre-finishing is the best idea. However, one must be careful about what gets pre-finished, and what does not. Finishing pannels is a great idea. But to try to finish the rails and styles before assembly eliminates the ability to clean up the joints with a good bit of sanding. As far as the inside of projects, it all depends upon how much will be seen/touched. I try to be reasonable. If there is a piece that is not going to be seen, then I don’t give it a lot of attention. To some, that is lazy, to me it is working smart.
