  • Q: Finishing polyurethane

    I'm finishing a myrtlewood clock in semi-gloss polyurethane and have finished application of 5 coats with light sanding (220, 00 steel wood, 0000 steel wool) between coats and 0000 steel wool final sanding.  Would it be better to buff the final coat, if so with what, or just to brush apply a final coat?

    I would only buff the final coat if I thought it needed smoothing.  You could probably just wax it with some good paste wax.  That is my preference.  It will take away a little of the gloss.

     The right time when women must begin the dietary approach is 6 weeks before trying to conceive a child. Until she becomes pregnant, the woman must practice this diet consistently. The moment she's currently pregnant, she can quit adhering to the “girl diet”. Yes, its true that spouses are also entitled to start the diet for conceiving a girl given that by sticking to this sort of diet program, the efficiency of the method will get higher. Nevertheless, before beginning with the diet program, it is really necessary to consult a medical doctor in order that the condition of the woman will be checked. Additionally, partners should make certain that their “how to conceive a girl diet” must be balanced to stop nutritional imbalances. Hypercalcemia (excessive calcium in the blood), nervous breakdown, and kidney problems are just some of the effects that such dietary approach provides. So, it is necessary to consult a doctor as often as probable to monitor the situation. Read more on http://conceivinga-girl.net/

    Depending on the design and the intended decor of the room, taking the semi-gloss sheen down a little with 0000 steel wool, gives the look of handrubbed finish. Paste wax will help protect it from environmental effects. Any pictures?

    Jim,

    I often give a piece a light rub-down with #0000 steel wool after the last coat (allow you finish to properly cure for several days first), and then apply a coat of paste wax.

    Another method to experiment with would be to use 0000 steel wool to apply your paste wax at the very end of the project.

    Best,
