I'm ready to finish a simple maple bed. I'd like to keep the color as light as possible - like it looks under alcohol.
It's for a daughter just starting apartment life who will likely move frequently, so should be a durable finish.
I'm an inexperienced finisher, have always used brush on poly before except one piece I tung oiled and waxed.
I bought a can of wipe on poly on the recommendation of a helpful demonstrator at Woodcraft. Would that work well? Sand between coats? How long between coats?
I've sanded to 220.
