Spar Varnish On A Solid Body.


Recommended Posts

I recently finished a solid body with Formby's tung oil.

Due to a fracture issue, I stripped the finish and on the second attempt, the residual oil caused a big problem with the water based stain.

I stripped it once more and used Stew Mac alcohol based liquid stain.

Color came out great. I am worried about using the Formby's again.

I was planning on using shellac to seal any impurities and use a wipe on poly, but shellac says not to use poly in top if it.

I do have the access to lots of spar varnish.

At my work, we refinish ladders in spar varnish and I used it on a table and it came out nice.

Anyone use spar varnish on a solid body before?

It is McClosky's Spar Varnish.
