Well, coming up on 6 years in this summer, and I am finally starting to get finishing up on the addition. Started getting doors, trim and cosmetic things done in the new office and entrance. The trim I went with pine due to cost constraints. I was going to stick with natural, but went with Red Oak stain to contrast the natural finish tongue & groove. Now I am not a builder nor a carpenter, but my years as a roofer gave me some decent constructions skills and common sense. The stuff is not perfect, but I am very pleased with the way it is turning out. The doors are pine 6 panel solid doors. The trim is also pine 1"X stock. I sanded the doors and trim with an orbital sander with 150 grit in an attempt to get a more uniform stain. There is still some variances, but I like it as is. I stained everything with Minwax Red Oak oil base stain. I then put 2 coats a few hours apart of water based polyurethane floor coating in high gloss. After a day or two to set, I sanded again with a 320 grit sanding sponge block. I tried sanding with 220 sandpaper and it scratched too much. The 320 block worked real nice. Then cleaned the dust off and again 2 more coats of clear high gloss. 4 coats really turns out real nice and smooth. Well I don't have a dust free work area, so there is minute imperfections, but still turned out real nice for me. I am finding I like to do a couple horses worth of trim at a time, as my back hurts alot after doing that amount of work. The Tongue and groove as I said is natural finish, and the water base does not seem to make it go amber so much, and it holds the natural color better. My mistake was to put the tongue and groove up and let it sit before putting the clear on, and not getting the trim up at same time frame. To cover the corners and along where the walls meet the ceiling, I am using furring strips(cheap at $9.75 per 10 pc bundle) along the wall top at the ceiling, and was going to use 3/4" 1/4 round until I set a pc up in the corners and didn't like it. I decided to rip down 1"X stock to get 3/4" x 3/4" square stock that I like in the corners. I was going to leave the ceiling & corner trim natural, but it is too light as opposed to the tongue and groove. I supose I could wait a few years for it to darken then clear, but just want to be done. So I will also stain them Red Oak and 4 coats of clear gloss. Oh the tongue and groove walls & ceiling I did clear satin finish. Really turned out to my liking between the satin walls & ceiling and gloss trim. Anyway, here is some update photos. I still need to paint some of the entrance doors. I will be painting them the same color as the Dark Bronze door to the garage and office entrance doors. These two are the new entrance.
