PREPARING FOR THE FINISH
Although you may think that finishing is mainly about the finish that you apply to the project, a lot of the success of the finishing process is about how good a surface you made. So take the time to go over your project one last time to make sure that your sanding job is nice and even. If you’ve used another method to get to your final surface, such as hand planing or using a scraper, you also need to double check to see if the surface is as good as you can get it.
One method of seeing if your project is ready is to spray it with a light coat of water or alcohol. This will make any irregularities in the surface more prominent.
