    I have made small cedar items like drink coasters by the hundreds so I thought to dip them. I thinned, oil based, poly about 10% with naphtha. I dipped the coasters and then wiped them with a soft rag to avoid drips forming on the undersides. Two coats did the job. If I wanted higher gloss I sprayed...

    I use compressed air. For fretwork, I usually apply the stain with a brush, so I can work it into the nooks & crannies, without getting too much on. Then I lay the piece on a rag or paper towels and take the air nozzle, blowing out the excess. Keep wiping it down to ensure you don't get any runs...

    Bob Flexner has a terrific book on finishing. In his oil finish chapter, he shows how misleading product labeling is. Some products labeled tung oil do not contain tung oil, for example. Some oils are really more thinned polyurethane than oil, like Waterlox. Danish oil is an oil-varnish blend....

    My husband uses Bison Wax as a final top coat on the cabinets he is making. It feels like silk when he is finished. This cabinet is a gloss finish with the wax on top. You can see how the grain is defined and stands out.

    Seal the project with Tung Oil. Let that cure and then put on the finish or your choice.
