Looking for comments / suggestions here. Overall I’m happy with this 1st attempt.
This is a sample of maple finished with:
2 coats of India Ink (flooded, wait 1 min, the wiped off).
1 Coat GF seal a cell
5 Coats GF wipe on gloss poly
1 Coat GF wipe on semi gloss poly
Final buff with steel wool / wax
I think I can skip the seal a cell step. I’m not sure if it adds anything with the ink being applied.
