derek willis Xplory4,
As I stated in the short write-up,(it was short, because I lost the original), I used Medium Oak spirit stain, and finished with Rustins Plastic Coating, just brushed on, one coat is usually enough, although I seem to remember that I diluted the product quite a bit with Cellulose thinners and gave about three coats, which was easy with the high summer temperatures it dried almost instantly, If you are not familiarr with plastic coating, it is a two pack finish rather lile melamine coating.

harrysin Now you're cooking with gas Derek, that's the kind of photo shoot I keep on about. May I just ask one more thing from you Derek, adding text and arrows where needed to the photographs makes following the processes much easier. My early threads were just the same until I sought help from forum members as to how text is added to the pics. There were lots of answers, I ended up taking Bj's advice and downloaded the free program "" which I found to be easier than "Paint" which comes as part of Windows, and simpler than Photoshop. I'm very impressed with your work.

Really great finish on your project

Derek that is a great picture series, I really like the finish on your cabinet. That is one part of woodworking that I do enjoy. It is the finish that the true inner beauty comes out in the project.

Maybe some timd you could give some kind of account on how you did the finish. Thanks Jerry
