Finally the seemingly endless preparation reached a point that i deemed adequate and i brushed on the first sealer coat. It's still wet in these pics, and when it's dry, it has to be sanded (every effin' thing has to be sanded....over and over and over.....I'm sick of sanding...). Then i have to fill the grain, sand that, then apply another coat of sealer and (guess?) ..... then finally it will be ready for the gloss laquer to be sprayed on. Whether or not the weather is gonna be suitable for that part of it remains to be seen.
