Bristol Finish

I used it about a year and a half ago and in 6 mos it was in pretty bad shape. Cracking and peeling in spots. I stripped to bare wood and followed the instructions. I was disappointed in the appearance, I have used varnish for the last 15 years and the bristol didn''t compare with varnish, however many people commented that it looked good. I have to admit it looks better than cetol. Now if I can get the rest of it off I am going back to varnish, at least the varnish manufacturers don''t make claims of lasting two years in the florida sun
