Wingback “after” photo. This project came out beautifully.
As predicted, there was a lot of sanding to do. The wood came back from the strippers with a sort of fuzzy quality. No fault to the stripper, it’s just the nature of the procedure, and also to the species of wood, in this case poplar I believe.
I applied two coats of General Finishes Brown Mahogany water base stain,  leaving time between coats to dry, and then a satin clear coat acrylic finish. The carving was not going to receive the brushed-on finish so easily like the rest of the chair, so I used an acrylic satin in a spray can, and that filled in where the brush couldn’t. Off to the upholsterers.
