Hello, Max,

I have kudos and a question, please!

I am delighted to find your post and your photos! I recently bought a 1960s
house. Sadly, the family room of the house is filled with really BAD 80s
paneling. I found a scrap of Eichler-looking mahogany paneling in the attic,
which I think must have been original. It has a saturated, rich, dark,
slightly reddish tone exactly like your doors.

Up until now, replacing the really BAD paneling with mahogany paneling was
simply WAY too far out of our budget; the plan was to (sigh) PAINT. Your
results have inspired me to try to replace it with stained luan! So now to my
question:

Your process indicates Waterlox *first*, as a sealer, *then* staining twice
and finishing with varnish. Just want to confirm, please! I would have
stained first, varnished later-but I am learning

Thanks!
