« Part 16: Glider mechanism Part 17 of Morris style glider series Part 18: Done! »

4.5 years since the start and I can finally start to bring out that beautiful wood grain! Have everything sanded to 220 and all the parts that can be disassembled laid out and cleaned off.

Started with all the parts upside down to apply the “under” parts first. Once dry, I will flip over. Rinse, repeat.

I went with danish oil as a finish. I am familiar with it and is hard to mess up. I also wanted to go with a finish that was protective, but didn’t leave the surface feeling like plastic.

Have started to cut out the fabric and the foam for the cushions will be arriving Monday! This is where my wife will step in. She is more experienced with sewing clothing rather than upholstery, but her help will be invaluable. It also makes it a piece that we both had a hand in!
