Re: Finish for new mahogany
So you all have just about convinced me. Varnish is the way to go.
That is beautiful Minnewaska, might make me rethink the gloss finish!
The time is not really an issue, and the sanding I can tolerate, so I think I'll give the varnish a chance.
I appreciate all of the input, I should have some finished photos in a couple of weeks I'll post. So far I'm pretty pleased about the results, even if there has been a lot of trial and error involved to get there.
