Natural Finish on Softwoods Recipe
Learn to get a lustrous clear natural finish on softwoods like pine, Douglas Fir, cedar and others. Follow the clearly demonstrated step-by-step instructions for sure-fire success. Easy, fast and effective.
Step by Step Instructions
Sand the project up through the grits until at least 220-grit
It is a good idea to sand pieces that will be hard to reach before assembly.
Wipe the project with mineral spirits to check for glue splotches
Apply a sealer coat (Zinsser Sealcoat) of a shellac-based finish by wiping: flooding the surface with finish and wiping it off.
If you have any nail holes, cracks or defects in the wood, fill them now with a wood filler putty that matches the color of the oiled wood (sand smooth)
Apply at least two coats of a wipe-on polyurethane
Optional: After the finish has cured for 72 hours, apply a coat of high-quality paste wax and then polish it off.
