Just put 5 coats of wipe-on poly on my table, should I do anything else now, or am I done? Just want to make sure. Thanks

You get to be the judge of that. If your happy with it and it’s completely dry a little wax and your good to go.

There are usually some very fine dust nibs. Rubbing down woth #0000 steel wool, or even a cotton cloth, will give you a silky smooth finish. As jim said, wax is good too.

Thanks, it came out great. I was just wondering if I should put a paste wax on it or not. I built a finish room in my shop, 6’x5’ covered with plastic, I can take it down when I’m done. It works great, no dust at all.

next step is to open a beer, post pics of your project on LJ, enjoy the fact that you just transformed a bunch sticks into a finished piece, and start planning your next project.

I strongly recommend the beer … have one for me while you are at it!
