Hi! This is Jon on behalf of Expert Village in this video clip I will be showing you how to apply finish. After we have let our stain dry overnight we need to take a tack cloth and go over our piece and make sure that we get any type of little debris or dust that is on the top of it. To apply finish I would be using a foam brush. What you want to do is get a little bit of finish on that foam brush and we are just going to paint it on the surface. Now we are going to be doing 3 coats of this we are going to do this first coat we are going to let it dry for 24 hours and then we are going to come back and steel wool it and then do our second coat. Then we are going to let that dry for 24 hours and we are going to come back and steel wool it again and then we are going to do our third coat and then we would be done.
