This is my latest accomplishment. This is a klockit kit that I purchased a couple of months back, more like 6 months but who is counting. Some assembly required but it was a good experience. I used Transtint Dye on the ash wood. I then applied a coat of BLO. I let it dry completely and then used Minwax wipe on poly. Wiped on about 5 coats. The last 3 coats I sanded with 0000 steel wool in between applications. The wipe on poly is so easy to use I am sure that i will be using this method for a while. Mounting and tuning the movement is a challenge and plan on spending the better part of a day tuning it.
Ok gimme the feedback good and bad.
