First post on here, I have lurked in the past but finally joined. I am currently building a shadowbox for my Fiance’s Dad’s flag and awards. He passed about 8 years ago and the family never received a flag, so after some effort I was able to get one and all of his awards, she doesn’t know about any of it. I plan on suprising her with this at the rehearsal dinner for our wedding on the 18th. On a couple of pieces of it I am having a hard time getting that perfect finish and have a couple of “burrs” on the finish. I have sanded between each coat of poly and am to what I would consider the final coat. The shadow box is made of all oak. Any help would be appreciated as this is a hugely important project to me and I want to do everything I can to make it perfect.
Thank you so much,
PS. I didn’t really like the layout of what I could purchase in a store and also thought that building it myself would be the best tribute I could give to the man who I wish I could have met
