Always sand wood with the grain and always wear a respirator or dust mask while sanding. Remove all sanding dust
using a rag or tack cloth. Use a poly brush or rag to apply the stain. Wipe off any excess with a clean rag. Let
dry thoroughly, approximately 45 minutes. Do not sand again until after first coat of finish has been applied.
- Apply Kwick Kote Lacquer. Kwick Kote is a water-clear finish available in stain and gloss sheens. It was
specially formulated for use in the restoration of antique and collectible furniture. The satin finish will give
the look and sheen of an old hand-rubbed finish. Stir thoroughly, do not thin. Apply a liberal coat using a good
brush or spray equipment. Allow to dry 20-30 minutes. Rub down with hobby pad or steel wool until finish is
dull. Dust off with soft cloth. Apply additional coats in the same manner until desired sheen or thickness is
achieved. Do not sand last coat unless you wish to dull the sheen of the finish.
