I am a bit wrapped around the axle when it comes to finishes, especially for my latest project.
I am making chalk board easels for a school. 1×2 wood. 42” high, 18” wide. 1/4” hardboard 2S with a chalkboard finish. Two identical units hinged at the top. (Think fancy sawhorse.)
I am tinkering with Red Oak, Maple, and Poplar. Hopefully no stain, just protective finish.
All of my previous bookshelf projects have used Minwax Oil-Modified Poly with great results.
I am making 15 of these at once; time to finish is a factor, but I don’t like putting out inferior product. I am thinking about Danish Oil oil, but I am hoping for some advise from people with more experience…
