The purpleheart as been finished with the oil based gel satin finish. Let's just say I am always leery when doing any finish other than Danish Oil. I struggled with this one. After I had done a couple of coats I did not like the way it had come out. So I spent a few minutes sanding it off and then redoing it. The fingers are fragile and sanding the finish off was nerve racking but it survived.
Now that this is finished I can get back to my entry for the NC State Fair this year.
