t's time for everyone's favorite topic: finishing!
I plan on using polyurethane to finish my Sitting Bench Step Stool, and this time, I'm not going to use an expensive specialty varnish. Instead, I'm making my own wiping varnish by diluting some good old Minwax Polyurethane 50/50 with mineral spirits. But before I apply the poly, I need to apply a single coat of Zinsser Bullseye SealCoat Dewaxed Shellac as a sealer. This is a good precautionary measure for just about any wood as the shellac seals off any impurities or oils on the surface. But if you happen to be using a naturally oily wood (many exotics fall into this category), this is a necessary step when using an oil-based varnish topcoat. If you don't do this, the oil-based finish will have difficulty curing.
