I have used WB Poly on all of my furniture because of its alcohol resistance. No, I am NOT a heavy drinker, for those of you with evil thoughts or suspicious minds. Haven't you read another thread relating to the pleasures of relaxation at the end of the day?
I normally brush on 5 coats (of the WB Poly) before I begin to go through the grits with Abralon on my ROS. - 1,000, 2,000, 4,000 than Maguires.
I finally have been seduced by the shellac-heads at Knots and am using shellac on a cherry candle stand. (It DOES produce a really nice warm glow after 3 coats. I'm wavering.) But, how many coats should I apply before I "go through the grits"? My first coat, brushed on and then sanded w/ 320, was MinWax premixed, cut to 1#; my next two coats are about 1 1/2#.
Thanks for your help.
