    Unfinished Chairs, Finished.

    Really impressed with the target coatings.

    The advice from Dave to add a little vintage maple was spot on. Just enough color to make the parawood look warm, without overpowering. Works very well with the maple cabinets in the kitchen.

    2 coats EM1000 with 8 drops of Transtint Vintage maple per 8oz.
    5 coats EM8000cv.

    They sure came out looking nice. How long did you have to wait between coats?

    Nice finish job. Those dimples for the back side may be too small for my tush, but most are.

    Logan looks confused, like "there should be some table scraps around there somewhere, I just know it!"

    The instructions say to wait a minimum of 1 hour, so what I would do would be to spray one side, wait an hour, flip it and do the other side.

    Pretty much just set a timer and would go out once an hour and do a flip and a spray.

    Now I'll wait a week or so and then see if I want to rub them out.

    The first two I did a couple weeks ago seem to have lost some of the sheen, or perhaps my technique changed a bit between batches. I'll wait a while and see if there's any rework that I might want to do.

    Those look great! This may be the solution I go for when it's dining table time.

    They look great! but, I personally think you put one to many coats of clear on that table
    The perception of perfection is perfectly clear to everyone else

    Those chairs came out really good. Just notice something is missing in the middle or is it bring your own tv tray.
    cheers

    It was Darren's idea to arrange them that way...

    All my other projects, except for the typical spring tasks are out of the way now and guess what I'm working on this weekend...
