    Birdseye Maple

    Turned into 50 caliber tooth pick holders.
    Sanded to 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool and applied 6 coats of MINWAX Oil Modified Water Based Polyurethane.

    Got to like this stuff as it dries hard within 1-2 hours compared to the Oil Based with takes 4 hours to dry hard.
    Also the Water Based dose not jell in the can after a time exposed to air like the Oil Based.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.
