ouch clint, I suppose woodworker didnt start valuing their work until the invention of polymers and plastics. What about woodworkers who send their work out to get finished due to space and permit restrictions related to spray booths??

I quite like oils, danish is a simple and good one. Oils age handsomely compared to some more modern finishes and can be rejuvenated with less work. Im not a genius finished so perhaps thats why I like the oil, but I like my first few coats are applied generously and with rag and wiped off with a clean one. Then I like to apply a few coats with a soaked piece of steel wool.

Cherry also looks nicely with Tung Oil, which I apply similarly.
