I am rapidly finishing up what I consider to be my first project (due Friday! ) and I have a question.
I have built a memory box for my daughter out of lyptus (because the Woodcraft in Albuquerque doesn't carry QS white oak). I applied red-mahogany min-wax late last night and it turned out better than I expected, but I would like it darker if I possible. The can says to reapply a second coat 4-6 hours after the first, but due to needs to sleep and work and boy scouts I won't even be able to look at it for 24 hours .
Can I add a second coat at this point ?
I am intending to top coat with shellac. I don't have much time left. I have to give my wife some time to take care of the memory part of it. It will be filled with dance memorabilia, as she is a senior in high school and just finished what will probably be her last recital.
thanks (pics and a proper introduction to the Creek maybe later this week)
