I’d like to add that finishing is a whole different world so many avenues to take, What I posted above is what I found to be my niche or groove and am finding it’s working great for me, Another thing about finish is what type of sheen you are looking for be it flat, satin or gloss and this topic has been brought up here on LJ’s a time or two, (is it a guy or girl thing? Which room is it going into? etc….) myself I like a gloss sheen and have never tried a satin and am myself still learning these avenues, for example a kitchen recipe box, I would think it would take on better a satin or even a flat appeal as most kitchen related items aren’t very shiny, as I’ve witnessed when doing shopping in these areas.

As for as oils go they need longer drying times as well before applying any other finishes such as poly and such.
