Unless you want it to look like it has chicken pox that is.
Aw come on, it would add 'character'.

I just finished a similar issue on a table I had... worked great, but of course, everyone is entitled to a brain fart or two every once in a while.

I use it all the time on pieces I can bring home but it never gets NEAR my boat. Onboard, Scotchbrite pads are a decent substitute.

Does anyone else out there find the new factory wood finishes a bit TOO perfect? I find the teak on Hunters et.al. is so flawless that it looks like Arborite. I much prefer hand applied varnish with all it's imperfections.

Re: Seeking interior laminate advice

I agree. It is not just that it is too perfect, but also it very hard to duplicate or repair over time. I assume much of it is sprayed on at the factory prior to assembly. Glossy surfaces also show wear much faster. I have been very happy with my oiled teak interior. It has held up well over 40 years and can be refinished in less than a day.
