Subject:
stain and sealer applied *PIC*

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.

The wood was wash coated with about a 5% solids shellac then sanded with 220 paper. Stained with Tanstint dissolved in isopropyl alcohol, 1 part medium brown and 2 parts reddish brown, diluted 3 parts stain to 47 parts alcohol. Just a small amount of color applied to wood by spray at 20 psi and a very low feed. Finally, sealed with Waterlox gloss diluted 3 parts varnish to one naptha. When this coat cures I will sand it again and recoat.

If the surface looks uniform after the second coat of gloss I will overcoat with satin, and done. Otherwise I will sand yet again.
