I put a second coat of varnish on the stairs today. I should say a big “thank you” to Celcus and Jedd who gave me good advice last time I wrote about this. I’ve been following that advice, sanding and steel wooling and restaining over the last couple weeks. The second coat did indeed go on easier, as predicted. A photographer from the paper stopped by to take a picture, which should appear on Saturday. I’m almost excited about the third coat now.
I ran into Celcus yesterday. I meant to ask him how he knows so much about varnish anyway. But I got distracted when I offered him a taste of my famous brandy balls.
