Thank you all for the kind words, by far my biggest piece yet. The poly did look thin after a quick light sand and now I do plan on adding 2-3 more coats to the top. Will probably leave the bottom, drawers and drawer sides with 3 coats. I like Sark’s plan, it’s kind of everything I’ve been looking into. I’m just starting out this whole real woodworking thing so it’ll be cool to see the different mediums ie 0000 wool, wax etc.

I was going to use the Johnson’s Paste Wax – what I use on my iron tops – any thoughts on that? Although that McGuires Detailing Liquid looks interesting because I can see how the depressions may ‘trap’ wax.

I really do appreciate all the knowledge and quick responses – what a great resource!
