One of the best parts about woodworking is putting the first coat of stain or poly on. That’s the first time the grain really stands out and pops. It also means you’re getting close to using whatever you’ve made, and that’s a good feeling as well.

I just finished a shelf for our bathroom to get a little more storage. I started recording after putting a coat of poly on one half so you can see the difference. It’s great.
