    I functioned as a coatings engr and do not have even the first clue as to how a "spar varnish" differs from a and b and c etc
    more marketing in coatings than lipstick

    constituent resins, oils, solvents, etc
    but w/o access to someone's exposure data, one is left listening to the vendors

    Ok... follow this and I promise you will be happy...BUT... be ready to put the work in.

    First... prep... sanding the wood.. sand WITH grain... this is a given I know... start with 80...one good pass.. go to 120... one good pass... then 200.. again one good final pass till smooth.

    CLEAN RAG... dump PAINT THINNER on it and proceed to clean the wood ... watching for rag fibers... really wet the wood evenly to same darkness as a rule.

    Make sure that ALL dust and debri is freed from surface.

    First coat... apply evenly and decently...

    Continue ?

    This is where the "tricks" come in.... and the work... BUT... in the end you will thank me.

    You will need the following items... One of which is hard to find and fairly expense when found due to its unavailability ...

    Which is ... STAINLESS STEEL wool. Double 0... "00".

    Yep...

    This is "the key" ingredient.

    YOU SHOULD take the extra time or effort to find the stainless as opposed to the regular... for if you do not... you may regret it by finding rust spots around your area later.

    Ok... after first coat... lightly rub with SSW (S steel wool)... do it till it "clouds"... which is not a lot.

    CLEAN RAG... paint thinner wipe down (this will beevery time).

    Second coat... lay slightly heavier and evenly... watching the woods "dry spots" sucking it in... go back over these and try a nice "level" coat.

    Let dry... test by rubbing a small corner and if "gummy" ... its not dry..

    When dry take SSW and sand to cloudy....

    CLEAN rag and thinner... then apply next coat thicker... and repeat each step... step by step.

    With each coat you will begin to see the build.

    Stand back and admire. :P

    Next item...

    CHEAP CHINA brushes from Harbor Freight.

    No joke.

    Watch for bristles that detach occasionally.

    that is it,

    This is all in the way you "lay it down"... nice long even strokes... ue the cheap brushes... dip in and slide off lip of can to remove the extreme excess.

    I am assuming you mean the varnish...

    IF you have high spots... sand till smooth... start over.

    Use care when strokes... this is something that comes over time... but I will tell you that long even pressure will win.

    use the 120 - 200 if real high.

    But yes.. the SSW will sand as well... keep flipping pad of SSW.
