Problem: I don’t have enough Arm-R-Seal for another coat I need to make.
How I got into this mess: Before my last coat of Arm-R-Seal, I buffed with 0000 steel wool. However, I only wiped it off by hand (gasp!) before applying the Arm-R-Seal. When applying the finish, there were steel wool nubs in my finish. Once I realized this, I quickly took a rag soaked in MS and wiped the table. It wasn’t tacky, but there is certainly unevenness in the finish now. (not hard lines, but just some places that look like they took more of the last coat than the rest)
The amount of Arm-R-Seal I have left is about 1 tablespoon. (yikes!)
Unfortunately, time is a huge factor here.
You can soooooorrrta see what I’m talking about in this picture. The walnut on the lower right is certainly glossier/deeper than the walnut in the reflection of the left light.
