    Then gloss coat polish.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Parkay? You sure it's not butter? Beautiful job there, eh?

    Stuart, something about sanding with fine grits. When I painted some tins on my bike and took it to 4000 i had to see what it would be like on furniture.

    Rob, every time I begin a project like this it feels like my 1st time. I never know what problems I'll run into dealing with antiques. Once the wood has been compromise with chemicals no telling what reactions await you. What I know is how to counter-act mas all I've had slap me down.
