    Wear a mask while sanding.  I've read that it isn't good to enhale MDF (particle board) dust.

    Thank you for your help!  I hope to work on some kits this weekend, but I need to purchase stain and supplies first. What kind of stain do you use?  How do you apply it?  What kind of poly do you use? What glue do you use? Sorry for all the questions, but I really want to do a nice job.

    The credenza looks perfect to me! I don't know why you're not happy with it. And the accessories are awesome!

    I've got some 1/2" scale wooden furniture kits (not this one, but I wish I did lol) and I have some finishing questions.... Do I stain, assemble with glue, then seal with poly?  Or do I have the order wrong? Is there any sanding I need to do? How do you do it? Any help would be most appreciated!

    Beautifully done and love the fabric you chose!
