I finally got the last coat of finish on the rocker. I will now let it cure for a week then rub it out and wax it. As I was moving it out of the shop into the house, I was suprised and pleased the way the finish appeared in the bright sunshine; so I snaped this picture. When it is completely done I will take good pictures and post them.

Great Job, Dino. I know you're proud of it. Thanks for posting, it may get me to restart on mine after giving in to "summer pursuits"

Thank you for all your kind comments. My best estimate as to time invested is about 130 hours. The finish is 5 coats of Waterlox Original (in the red can) applied every other day with a rag and lightly scuffed between coats . As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, in about a week I will rub it out with 0000 steel wool and buff with wax. When it is totally finished, I will take detail photos and post them

Awsome job Dino!!!!!!!!!! It looks great. I look foward to seeing some pics of it when it's all rubbed down and out. Be proud of your accomplishment. Lots of guys never finish theirs for some reason. :(
