Step 2: Sealing
I had planned to stain the bench, but then my mother licked it. Okay, she didn’t really lick it. What she did do was spit on her finger, then touch the rough sanded bench. This showed us what the wood would look like with just a clear top coat rather than a stain. I’m glad she spit on my bench, because the wood's natural color was beautiful.
In a well-ventilated area (my patio), I gave the bench two coats of Polycrylic, allowing it to dry completely between coats. I made sure there are no brush marks.
