Re: Varnish. AAAGH!
two more words:
You can roll and tip varnish like paint, and the key to a durable brightwork finish is to apply at least 8 coats with the first few coats thnned in decreasing ratios and the thinned coats sanded with 220 grit to break the shine between coats, then you can hot coat the last few coats. call it a week, with a day to prep, with a coat a day for coats 1-4 and two coats a day for coats 4-8. I have tried epifanes, bristol finish, le tonk, and all varieties of cetol (the naugahyde of brightwork finishes) and i have had the best results with a cheap locally produced spar varnish sold through a chain of hardware stores up here.
