Freaking out? Naw- insanely irritated? Absolutely. One of our brethren states in his signature that “woodworking – patience = firewood”. The humor and truth behind that has resulted in significantly fewer projects meeting untimely ends by volunteering to become frisbies.

Google returned many results for “perfect finishes for table tops”, none of which have satisfied my perfectionist ways. Getting straight scoop from you folks is very much appreciatted.

As for the book Loren, it just hit my number one must buy. Thank you all. One last question, if I may. When applying wipe-on, this not being virgin wood, there is no “rubbing into the wood” as the directions state. What is the technique that those of you with experience prefer for final coats?
