Re: How many coats is enough?

The more coats you use and the better finish you attain will lead to a richer look.. but you will not have the UV and natural exposure of outside finishes... 2 or 3 coats should do it if the wood's nicely prepped; probably the further you go the nicer the result (but at a cost in time and money)
