I'm going to start testing some finishes for these Ash bookcases because my guess is it will take a while before I find what I like. I want them light colored because there are so many of them in the room. I'll post photos of the different tests so you can tell me what you like the best.
My question is, aside from stain or no stain, what do you recommend for *after* the stain. I need something dead easy as in a monkey with some good light could do it. This is for someone who has never finished ANYTHING. And whatever you suggest, please explain it in little words, from start to finish. Application? tell me what to use to apply it and how much to apply. Sanding? Tell me how much and what grit. Drying? tell me how long....
Looking forward to advice,
