Re: Surface quality from the plane question

Oskar
I leave my projects with surfaces right off the plane, and I don´t use building finishes. Rather boiled linseed oil, wax, light shellack coats (not building a polish) or some combination of these three. It usually results in surfaces one can see and feel that they are planed, which I enjoy.

Maybe not relevant for you, and your nice inlayed cupboard which might require a more sophisticated finish.
