In a nutshell...
Glossy = Classic
Satin = Classy

Actually, most satin varnishes dont have the UV resistant properties that the glossy varnishes have. Main reason to coat with glossy first...

From Epifanes: " Gloss finishes are more weather resistant and offer better protection against UV and weather. Building up with 3-4 coats of this before the Rubbed Effect will maximize protection. Secondly, the build-up of gloss gives the overall appearance of the finish more depth and clarity. Epifanes does manufacture a version of Rubbed Effect called Woodfinish Matte. This is one of the only “Rubbed Effect” finishes containing U.V. filters. This addition makes it very suitable for exterior use."

I thought the OP was asking about interior surfaces.

I am, I did the build up with Glossy mainly so the Satin base layers wouldn't leave a cloudy look. But I understand the protection aspect of the Glossy base coats as well.

My experience is mostly with finished wooden flooring.

I have found that high gloss shows wear and tear a lot more than a matt or satin finish, esp when viewed at an angle.

But when it is new the gloss looks great!

Re: Show Me Your Interior Woodwork: Satin vs Glossy

I've seen reference to thinned (10%) varnish on interior bulkheads, doors, trim. When would this be a recommended technique?

I ask because the interior teak on my '86 Bayfield seems very thin, almost a waxed looking finish, though I know whatever is there was brushed on. I'd like to refinish that wood back to original appearance. With Bayfield long gone, it's hard to know how they finished their interior teak. Can anyone advise? -thx
