Sealer + Polyurethane =

Luis finished sanding last night by vacuuming up the sawdust and then sealing the hickory risers and treads. Today, he applied the first coat of water-based polyurethane, let it dry, and is sanding it down, by hand, not machine. There’s nothing better than fingers to discover rough spots that need more attention.

What the stairs look like with one coat of sealer and the first coat of water-based, clear polyurethane -- with Luis working his way to the landing as he sands each step.
