Hello everyone! I am working on three entry doors for my sister. The doors are solid core with Alder veneer. She has asked me to finish them natural. Alder being such a open grain wood i knew i needed a durable finish with uv and moisture blocking capabilities. After some research i found that a marine spar varnish was the most recomended product. I have 10 plus years of new const painting and 14 years of spraying laquer base finish and paint. I understand the technique to brush varnishes on but i am having a rough time with this oil base spar varnish. I have added pics of product and 2 styles of quality brushes i have used. Doors were sanded with 180 grit and first coat of varnish cut with mineral spirits for better penetration. i have 4 coats on one door and 2 coats on a dif door I hope the pics explains the issue not to sure how to explain what it is doing. Any advice would be apreciated! these doors are $1400 per door i want to make them as beautiful as i can.Thanks Heath If more pics are needed will be happy to upload more.
