    Bed Finish

    I'm building my daughter a new bed out of solid and ply African mahogany.

    I'm thinking to use a gel stain and then a couple coats of polyurethane over top.

    Any advice on those choices, and the best way to apply the finish?

    hey harald, welcome

    i have never used gel stain so i can't comment on that, i usually the regular oil based stains.

    how do you plan to apply the poly? i have found the wipe on poly to be quite user friendly. but if you have spray equipment that is the quickest and easiest in my opinion.

    best of luck
