« Part 6: Using Summit HVLP sprayer for 1st coat of Poly Part 7 of Plantation Shutters series Part 8: Jambs & Stool installed, adjustable story stick, starting on casing »

Ahhh…I feel better now. Much better results after sanding with 400 grit (didnt have anything in the 300 range), vacuuming, and HVLP applying a 2nd coat of 100% poly (instead of my first coat of 15% water & 85% poly). Went a little heavier this time around as well. These are things I have to learn. I do have “Understanding Wood Finishing: How to Select and Apply the Right Finish” by Bob Flexner flexner coming in a couple days which should help. I do see 2 or 3 small “runs” buy may let them be since these are the inside window jambs and not the actual casings (which will be next up).
May not need a 3rd coat. Will see after 24hour drying time.
