What I Did On My Summer Vacation Volume 4 – or What Was I Complaining About?

13 08 2008

This morning was spent wiping down walls, windows and floors – trying to rid the living room of offending dust.  The Shop Vac was used more than once.  And Tack Cloth.  Lots of Tack Cloth.  I am amazed at this stuff.  Basically it is just sticky cheesecloth, but it picks up minute particles of dust like nobody’s business.

I then spent a few hours trying to find things to do other than putting the first l coat of polyurethane on.  This step scared me.  After all that work, what if I did something wrong?  Is the floor clean enough?  Could it ever be clean enough?  Should I invest in more tack cloth?

Finally, I decided to just jump in and do it. 

And check this out…..

Does anyone else hear angels singing?

I have at least two more coats tomorrow.  Hopefully one in the early morning and then the final sanding followed by another coat tomorrow evening.

So, you’re brushing it on? What finish are you using? Is ther a stain in it? What grit sandpaper are you using between coats? Hand sanding or orbital?

And now, knowing what you do, could you imagine doing this for a living?

Not me. 🙂
