I took everyone's advice from a previous thread and got the right blade
for my skil saw and managed to put together this small, angled monitor
hutch for a computer setup here at the house, made out of pine. Thanks
The desk upon which it sits is a very white wood (birch, I believe - or
beech - not 100% sure) - slightly whiter than the pine. I
intend/intended to apply poly finish to the little hutch (no stain) and
put it to use, but it occurrs to me that the stain will "yellow" the
wood a bit such that it matches the desk less. Currently, unfinished,
it's a pretty close match.
Would using bowling alley wax _instead_
of finish result in a finished
product that's closer in color to the white wood of the desk? What are
the negatives of using b.a. wax insteead of finish? Typically,
anything I've built and finished, I've applied (after the finish) a
nice layer of b.a. wax to complete the job, per habit of my father with
whome I was introduced to woodworking.
