Applying Poly

  1. This is a reminder to those commenting on this post (not the person that posted it): Comments not related to woodworking will be removed. Violations to rule 1 including crude jokes, innuendo, sexist remarks, politics, or hate speech may result in an immediate ban

  2. I always do the whole thing at once. Start on the bottom, then flip it over and rest it on painters points. I make my points out of small squares of scrap plywood and 1 5/8 drywall screws. Do the top and sides and allow it to dry. A little steel wool or #400 sandpaper to knock down the nubs, tack cloth, and repeat

  3. If you seal with unwaxed shellac first, you'll get a much better first coat. I do bottom, then top, drying 4 or 5 hrs before flipping, just so I don't damage fresh wet finish flipping it.
