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.



Why are people happy to accept science which makes their life easier while rejecting science that makes their faith or beliefs more difficult?

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.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

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.
