The stairs at the John Marshall House are getting a new finish. The old finish was worn away, and foot traffic was starting to damage the treads and risers. After three days of sanding, the stairs were clean enough to stain and varnish. The stain used was Minwax "Provincial" that was brushed on and immediately ragged off. The pictures show one coat of oil-based varnish. They will get at least two more coats.
