I know these picture-free posts are totally boring, but I do want to say that I poured up another belt last night. I tried brushing in the urethane to see if that would eliminate bubbles, and it did. I did end up with one little bubble, and that's enough to ruin it for me.
I'm also not at all satisfied with the color. (Notice a pattern in the recent posts??) Not sure what to do about that. The yellow is too bold, but when I try to darken it with some brown or black, it goes all green. I guess there must be some blue in the black and brown. Oh well.
Today I'm trying to sunbleach the belt, to see if that will knock the yellow down a little bit.
