I was asked to refinish some beautiful mahogany

front doors on a home in Long Beach, MS. The

finish had cracked and worn down to the bare

After sanding down the doors, the wood was so

beautiful, the client decided to just keep the light

I used three coats of Helmsman Spar Urethane.

I sanded with 400 grit between coats. I also

distressed the handle and spar coated over the

brass hardware which gave it a vintage aesthetic.
