My daughter wanted a cabinet to place in her den under a wall mounted TV to hold baskets for gradson's toys and husbands electronics.

Cabinet is maple, stained espresso and is 11' long.

After stained dried I placed a soft rag between a wood block and 320 sand paper and finish came out smooth as glass. I then put 4 coats of Minwax wipe on poly sanding between coats with 1000 grit abrasion pad . After final poly coat dried I rubbed down with plain sheet of copy paper.
