Want your finishes to feel as smooth as a piece of glass? Grab a Scotch-Brite pad.
After your last coat of finish has dried, buff the entire surface with one of these abrasive pads.
The ultra fine grade aluminum oxide abrasive quickly creates a polished surface that’ll have you running your fingers over your finishes with delight.
Unlike steel wool, these pads won’t splinter, shred, or rust — meaning they can last for ages and won’t mess up your finish.
I like to use them as the final step in Rubio Monocoat finishes, or even between coats if you do more than one.
More of a shellac aficcionado? Put a bit of paste wax on a Scotch-Brite pad and buff out the entire surface after your final coat.
You’ll be amazed at how much smoother and glass-like your finishes will become.
