    Using WOP

    I know this has been discussed before Im sure. I have been using some wop but I just cant get the smooth complete coverage I like on these flutes I have been making...I keep trying to add another coat but it isnt a complete smooth finish. I am using a rag and probably just need to sand with fine grit real good and apply a good finish coat of it...Got any suggestions? I have used it before w/o these problems...Just not getting a good finish...

    Are you thinning it 50/50 with mineral spirits?

    Charles,

    Are you sure about that? I understood something like, go forth and thin no more.

    With that I shall leave you.

    Enjoy,

    after first coat, touch sand, wipe off dust reapply second coat, repeat process as needed till finish desired. normal WOP is already thinned to use but thinning it wouldnt hurt it just take longer to get build.
    If in Doubt, Build it Stout!

    I'm sure you're right Jim, I was thinking of making your own wipe on from regular poly.

    Mike as a person who has used gallons of Wipe On Poly here is what I have found wipe on a thin coat let dry, sand (I prefer the 3m sanding sponges) with 300 and repeat. Thin coats don't try to put on to much ata time I typically do a min of 6 coats and have done as many as 12.
