And I can usually get 2-3 coats per brush (depending on the project size) by dropping it into a sealed sandwich bag between coats.

    I would think 5-10 coats should be more than enough to give you years of beauty and durability.
    Use bronze wool and any remaining steel wool that gets stuck in the finish won't rust. Boat builder trick...

    Not sure I would ever attempt to refinish a boat, but good to know even for floors, stairs, etc., that might get some water that doesn't get cleaned up.

    And those of you we have bored with some woodworking talk, we return to our regularly scheduled boat programming...

    I still need to get the cabinet sealed and the adjustable shelves stained and sealed but the bar is in place...

    Oh Yeah Baby~

    Last night was epic. Upper cabinet is in place now, started wiring things up to get computers and AV running again.... The Satellite receiver doesn't work in its current location so it will be moving, and there are other tweaks coming but if I had to do any audio editing, recording, or CAD work today the thing is functional...

    My planning wasn't as perfect as I had hoped. The darn breaker box is partially covered by the cabinet. I am debating how to resolve that but it seems the best thing is just to leave the whole thing off that back wall a little so I can get in there to reset any trips. If I have to get in to add a circuit or change anythning the whole bar assembly will have to be slid out from there or disassembled. Not a huge deal either way, but I wish it wasn't that way...

    Oh well.

    I guess that kinda wraps it up for this thread. At least we got past the woodwork and brought it back to the audio component...

    Excellent! Nice job and nice job on the thread to help entertain us during the winter months.

    And what do you mean by the end of the thread? Are you going to start a new one to invite us all over to watch Oklahoma football and drink your beer?

    Again, very impressive!

    Phil,
    Absolutely amazing craftsmanship, and btw, I was just fine without knowing about the breaker box.

    Sweet, job well done!!!

    And I feel you on the breaker box situation -- I always seem to have one of those little "gotchas" that nags at me. Work so hard to plan out the project and the hours spent putting it all together and then you get something like that. Oh well, like David said -- no one else needs to know and probably no one else would even notice if you don't point it out!!
