    fancy, something I should get myself to do someday.
    Couldn't put "fail" across Lolo's picture, but she did come in 4th in the 100 m hurdles - still one heck of an effort.

    It ain't cheep! I have done almost all the work, a contractor friend "approved" everything and helped me with the design. All the wood was free but still the cost is over $4K

    Get some furniture polish or wax on that maple asap,I've seen moisture lift the finish off maple more than any other type of wood in my 35 years as a cabinetmaker.

    What 8 coats of wipe on poly is not enough? I have never used wax on my pieces.

    If you used poly it's a non issue,most of the time it's a lacquer finish of some kind that people use on cabinets.
    Only down side to poly is repairs or refinishing is a pita but overall it's a tough finish and as waterproof as can be.
    Maple is finicky when it comes to moisture and changes in temperature,it likes to shrink and swell more than most other wood species so it can be hard on finishes.
    Poly will stretch more than lacquer and it seals better so it was a good choice for sure.
    I like oil/wax finishes myself but it's not the industry norm due to being costly and time consuming.
    That said oil/wax is easy to deal with because you can always add more without stripping/refinishing and it repels water very well too.
    That's a nice looking job you did and it should hold up very well.

    I really like the wipe on poly especially for repairs or recoating. Just sand with 220, apply to a lint free rag, wipe on, and dry in 2 hours.

    elaborate on what kind of wipe on poly you use, I'm going to be in the market for using some shortly.

    Hey Vinnie you know I'm never one to nit-pic, but I was just looking at your before picture again, and it sure looks to me like it's more of a "during" picture than a "before" picture,,,,,,,,,, I'm just saying........
