The racks will get three full coats and a fourth coat on the shelves. I'll scuff sand the racks with a very fine sanding sponge after the second coat just to smooth the finish.
Once they're done I'll let them sit over night. I do this not so much to let the finish dry: it dries quickly, but to let them air out a bit before sealing them up into boxes and placing them on the shelf ready to ship out to some lucky people.
Once these are boxed and stored away I'll clean up the shop a bit and start in on our next project; a special stopper rack that is 5 tiers high and seven spots wide for a total of 35 stoppers displayed. Why didn't I build that along with these? Because this is so atypical that it doesn't really flow in with the steps it took to make these 3 tier racks. this is a re-creation of a custom job we did for the fella a couple of years ago. Technically we're not doing custom work any more, but he is a past customer, and he begged. OK, no he didn't, I'm just an old softie. Gonna have to lose that habit.
