Not a whole lot to see here, since Minwax Natural #209 stain is more or less clear. Slapped a coat of that on everything last night, and it’s drying right now. Tonight, if it’s dry enough to endure bluetape, I plan to mask things off and apply Ebony #2718 to the rows of ones, fours, and sixteens. When those rows dry, I’ll mask things off and do the twos and eights. I’m hoping the first coat of Natural will use up some of the wood’s soakage, allowing the Ebony to pop in a single coat. We’ll see.
Ah, the smell.
