  1. Lightly sand the pieces of wood to create smooth surface.

  3. With a 2" foam brush, apply the Aged Wood Accelerator to the bare wood, following the directions on the can. 
  4. Let the Aged Wood Accelerator dry for approximately 1 hour.
  5. Apply the Ultimate Polyurethane with a foam brush following the directions on the label.
  6. For the smoothest finish, lightly sand the polyurethane finish between coats. A minimum of 3 coats are recommended.
