First time woodworker here, so go easy on me…
I’m 95% done restoring my first project piece – a 60s flip-top audio console – and I’ve encountered a dilemma. I’ve just finished applying a couple coats of Watco Danish oil and I don’t know if I should apply a top coat protectant, like a wipe on poly.
I’ve scoured the forums on the topic and it seems to be a mixed bag. Should I even apply a top coat? If I should add something to finish it, any advice on what it should be.
Most of my other furniture is Mid Century modern and Danish, so ideally I’d like it to be similar to what I already have.
Thanks for the advice!
