Ah, this raises more questions
I dabble in woodworking so now I’m wondering,
What type of finish, oil, polyurethane, lacquer, something else? (I imagine shellac is out because it doesn’t handle heat well)
What grit are they sanded to, 120, 220, 400?
What qualifies as a defect? knots of a certain size, sap wood that’s lighter colored (especially in walnut), voids?
Will it only be available prefinished? Or is this a special for the shows/maker fairs.
Does pre-finish/sanding really save time? I’d imagine that you’d need to resand all of your cut edges and finish the sides of the parts/pieces as well. most finishes are surface and only penetrate a bit into the wood. I’d want to be able to match the new finish to the uncut surfaces.
