Today in the Shop: hand polishing

Today, I wet sanded and hand polished the finish on this wall desk. Nothing beats a hand-rubbed finish: it is silky smooth and it brings out the warmth and depth of the grain beautifully.

I also prepared the aluminum stock into the seam between the shell halves.  The drawers received their final layer of finish, and I should be able to assemble them tomorrow.  All that is left after that is desk face.  It still needs at least two more layers of finish.
