Mahogany Mirror
Advice on what to use wood finish!?

I have successfully stripped and sanded wood and large framed mirrors. Now I'm waiting to staining and finishing wood is a Dark Mahogany color. PROS wood'm looking around to give me advice on what type of finish to use and appropriate application process ... there is a lots of options, but what better for a rich look in a mirror on the wall?? THANKS!

I spot one or two layers depending on how dark tint you want it. Then apply three coats of polyurethane varnish. Zar makes stains easier than I found. Sherwin Williams Wood Classics are a close second. Apply with a brush and wipe off any excess after 10 minutes. Minwax stain is the worst I know. Zar, Varithane Zip Guard and make excellent varnish. To This project will probably have to use oil-based varnish. Apply with a brush of white porcelain. Before the final layer of sand with some 220 grit sandpaper. Use tactic cloth before each coat. Allow drying time between coats overnight and do not skimp on the brushes. If you purchase a good brush and take care that can be used to future projects. Read the labels on the cans and not go wrong.

    It’s truly very complex in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, so I just use world wide web for that reason, and obtain the newest news.|

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!|

    Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.|

    Article writing is also a fun, if you know then you can write or else it is complicated to write.|

    Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a really good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don’t seem to get anything done.|
