Put on a long-lasting finish
1. Wipe off the sanding dust, and spray or brush on a coat of satin polyurethane varnish. Apply a thin coat to prevent runs.
2. Allow the varnish to dry, then sand the stool with 320-grit sandpaper. Dust the surface, and apply another light coat of finish.
3. The end grain on the box-joint fingers absorbs the finish, making the finger ends look duller than the rest of the stool. To avoid that, brush extra finish onto the end grain to build up the coating.
4. Sand the stool once more with 320-grit sandpaper. Then, put on the final coat of finish.
