  • American Bison portrait

    I have a friend that has an art studio in Custer State Park every summer. He is going through some health issues and I thought this would be a nice gift. The pattern is by Gary Browning and found in his book "Wild West Scroll Saw Portraits". I used 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood 12" square and backed with a black mat. Of course framed at ArtCrafters. I used FD New Spiral #1 blades and finished with spray Polyurethane. Comments welcome.

            First, follow the instructions on the can, regarding wait time between coats. I would think that for the first couple coats, re-applying while the previous coat was still tacky wouldn't be terrible, but I would warn that building several coats without allowing proper drying time, will extend the overall,...

            I use wipe on poly quite often and I apply 2 thin coats before sanding with 220 or 320. I wipe with a lint free. Someone told me not to use tack cloth as you can leave behind a wee bit of beeswax witch could cause issues later on.

            I make sure that the surface is dry and not tacky before...

            Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
            How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...
