Midnight Woodworking

Church Altar and tabernacle stand – day 29

The wiping poly dries pretty quickly, especially when it was the first coat. I was able to squee an extra brush coat on the two tops last night. This morning, I sanded down the panels and the two tops, with 400 grit sand paper, to remove the dust nibs from last night.

While I was sanding, I had the Carvewright working on another small detail. I decided to add a signature to both pieces, so I am carving them onto a small plate that I will attach when everything is dry.

I decided to lay the panels down to apply the final coat. This will allow me to do a full un-thinned brush coat without having to worry about it running.

I also applied a final brushed on coat to the tops as well. As I work, I look at the surface at an angle with the light across it. This helps me to see where I have missed a spot, or if any bristles have fallen from the brush into my finish. This project should be pretty much done after this coat dries. Hopefully I can deliver it this weekend…
