Looked like the POR15 raised the grain on the walnut. Are you fine sanding between coats to get a glass like surface? Or are you just applying more POR15 to the previous layer? Brings out the color and grain quite nicely. Looks good.




It actually did not raise the grain. It kind of looks like that, but I think it is primarily due to camera and light glare.

Yesterday, I applied the first coat early in the morning, and by the time I got back for the second coat, it was fully dry, which meant that I had to give it a light sanding.

After applying the second coat, when I went to apply the third coat, it was - as Por 15 says - "dry to the touch, but with slight finger drag". That meant that I did not have to sand the second coat before applying the 3rd.

I am applying these coats with the little white foam rollers, that are meant for cabinets and doors, and they produce a nice fine surface, if applied carefully, and with very light pressure on the last rollover.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Don't hold back, tell me what you really think. Lol.

I am not a POR15 employee. I do not profit from POR15 in any way, shape, form, or fashion, or any other way.

I have just found a product that I like and when properly applied, works like a champ. Nothing more, nothing less.

As far as an appropriate coating - Por15's website says it best.

So, since the manufacturer says it is good for wood - I decided to agree with them.

Well, you always sand between coats on any automotive finish, and POR15 is an automotive finish. Don't remember, but does the clear contain UV protectant?

Maybe he should add some ultra fine metal flake to one of the layers just for that shimmer effect.

Wonder what they mean when they print on the can "For metal substrates only". Guess he'll find out over the next year or so.



Unfortunately, it does not contain any uv protection. As per prior post, it applied a the correct time, sanding between coats is not necessary, unless it fully dries, then yes, light sanding is recommended.

Hadn't thought of metal flakes. Hmmmmmm.......

I put the stove back in the counter to see how it would look. I think I like it! No, it's not fastened.

A while back, I made the statement - "There will be some surprises coming".

Tonight is one of those nights. This is on the drivers side, obviously just in front of the counter area. This is an area that has been designated for something "different", instead of the old, "blah" cabinets, or something.

Maybe a stove of some sort, or something. Not fully decided yet, but this will be the first thing we see when we enter the coach, since this is directly in front of the entry steps.

Yes, it's wallpaper, so I can change it if I want to.

One thing that I forgot to add last night - from Por15's website.


LABORATORY TEST RESULTS

A POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating coating was subjected to 450°F for 10 hours; it remained hard and showed no apparent loss of adhesion A panel subjected to elongation was pulled beyond the yield point of the base metal without affecting the POR-15® Rust Preventive Coating coating.

Seems to me, that having something that will withstand 450 deg F, would be a good thing next to a hot stove top, rather than a finish that was "designed for wood", but won't take the heat.

Then again, that's just my view point, based on what the manufacturer says.

Like the wallpaper. The stone adds a nice contrast to all the wood. Hopefully the lack of UV protection won't be an issue inside the MH.

Yeah, me too. I can't wait for him to get out of "The Box" [emoticon]


My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

You may not remember some of my previous posts but telling you (or anyone) what I really think is what I do. While the employment part was meant as tongue-in-cheek, it is an unusual use for this product. When working with a wood countertop I would be more interested in durability than water proofing. Is there any information as to whether the product is food safe? You will be working on, cutting on, preparing food on, a surface covered by a product designed for rust proofing (despite other claims). Do they claim their product to be food safe?


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?
