Staircase - 1st coat of poly

Tuesday, February 14

This morning I had some car issues, so I decided to take the morning off, while my car was being worked on and had taken the opportunity to put the 1st coat of polyurethane on the railing. I decided to wait on the steps, but I did manage to coat the railing, spindles and posts, before heading off to work after my car was fixed.

The first coat of Poly is the worst, It soaks into the wood so much. And using it on the natural wood is a challenge..... you can hardly tell where you put the darn stuff on. The 2nd coat is better though... it goes on more smoothly and starts to leave the sheen, so I can tell what parts I've done.
