Day three of finishing looked just like the day before, so I didn’t bother to post it.
I decided, for the last two coats, that I would brush straight, undiluted polyurethane onto the upper counter top as well as the door. A big tip when using cheap, disposable chip brushes: Pull repeatedly on the bristles! Better they come out in your hand than in your finish.
These two items will probably get a bit more use than the other wood areas, so a little extra protection was applied. These two areas were also flat and less likely to develop runs.
The rest of the desk got a third and fourth coat of the thinner wiping poly.
Finish finally complete!
I decided to go ahead and pull off the masking while the poly was drying.
No particular reason, other than impatience. I wanted to see the finished product.
The Frog tape worked great, not a drop rolled under the tape.
I think it turned out great.
Since the finish was still wet, I was careful removing the tape under the shelves.
Well, here is the final product. I only have the door hardware to attach when it is dry.
Another outstanding project completed. Thanks for allowing us to follow along
beautiful! nice job. …again!
Thanks for the nice compliments. I really appreciate them.
