Greg Paolini shares his fool-proof 3-2-1 finishing technique, and easy three-part clear finish that goes on quick and provides excellent protection for your furniture.
Here’s the recipe:
3 parts: paint thinner or mineral spirits
2 parts: oil based polyurethane
1 part: oil (boiled linseed oil)
When it comes to applying this clear finish, it couldn’t be easier. Just saturate the wood with finish and sand the mixture into the grain using some fine-grit sandpaper. As the dust is sanded in, it actually fills the grain, allowing for a super-smooth finish. After that, it’s just a matter of thoroughly wiping off the excess finish, allowing it to dry, and repeating the process.
