I'm mostly sure that I'll be using steel wool to satin the top of my OM. For anyone that's tried it, what successful techniques have you used? I was using steel wool in between oil coats and never quite got a uniform sheen, both with the wool freehand and wrapped around a foam block. Now that I'm on the last coat i want to do it right, of course, and avoid any more coats if I mess it up.
I feel like the top needs to loose it's shine, as there are so many nicks in it. A satin effect should help. Poor top had a few growing pains, I'm almost embarrassed to show it! For anyone who doesn't know better, I'll just describe it as a vintage, distressed top, which usually brings in top dollar. :)
seems like shooting pictures in a drying booth is a challenge, I'll have some better ones soon. This final coat is in the middle of it's 1-2 week cure.
