Apply Stain

Apply stain directly to the surface of all pine strips using mini roller. Wipe away excess using painter’s rags.

Router Handle Holes

In order to keep the pattern consistent, the pine strips were attached directly over handle holes. Uncover the handle holes, first by creating a pilot hole using a drill and a 1” drill bit, then by using a routing tool along the inside edge of each handle hole.

Seal Surface

Once all handle holes have been uncovered with the routing tool, add an even coat of wood sealer along the pine strips using a paintbrush.
