Birch Plywood for base, Select Pine for trim, Stain Grade Pine for moulding, Birch Bead Board
Estimated Time Investment:
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
I filled all the visible pocket holes with stainable wood filler. After everything was put together, I sanded everything with 150 grit sandpaper. I used a palm sander for the plywood and hand sanded the pine trim and moulding. Then I vacuumed up the dust and wiped it clean with a damp rag. I applied Minwax Mahogany gel stain with white t-shirt rags I bought from Lowe's. If there was any excess of stain I would just wipe it off after about 5 minutes or so. I let that dry for at least 24 hours. Then I applied a coat of Minwax Clear Semi Gloss fast drying Polyurethane. Then I lightly sanded everything with 220 grit sandpaper. Vacuumed and cleaned again. Then another coat of the poly.
