I built my wife a desk. It is basically two small cabinets (about the size of a two drawer file cabinet) and then I’ll put a top on top of these. The top is a rosewood plywood and I put rosewood edging around it. I just finished sanding the desk top assembly to 220 grit.
My plan is to use a Minwax natural stain on the desk top. After it dries (how long to you think? Would 24-hours be fine?), I was going to brush on a coat of gloss polyurethane. After it dries, I would hit it very lightly with 220 grit sand paper (hand sand) and put another coat of poly on. Repeat again.
Do you think this a good process? Any advice, comments, or recommendations?
Thanks a million all and happy new year!!
