Still working on one of my pandemic lockdown projects-learning how to cut dovetails.[the other one was reorganizing my shop. not sure which was harder]. I have been making a modified version of a serving tray plan by Chris Schwarz [excellent for learning how to cut dovetails!]. I have made them from cherry, pine, and chestnut. Now I am using ash. Any ideas or suggestions on how to finish ash? I normally use shellac and wax, but the surface feels like corrugated cardboard. Not a formal piece so I don’t want to get into grain filling.Sanding to 220. Help. [email protected]
