Varnish

I need to do a bit of varnishing inside the saloon - nav station and table - I did the floor with Captains varnish and was really impressed with the results. But I can not get Captains here - what I can get is Epifanes or Interlux Schooner Gold and one or two other varieties =

Anyone use either of these for internal varnishing?

thanks

Re: Varnish

Both are quality products. I use Epiphanes. Their handrubbed effect gives a very nice interior finish. The wood gloss allows coating without sanding between coats, but the film thickness is much less than varnish, just do more coats, then top coat with varnish. That isn't as much an issue using it for the interior.

Re: Varnish

FWIW I use Epiphanes as well, never had any problems inside or out.
I don't like the polyurethane stuff, I stick with the old school varnish.

Re: Varnish

Rule of thumb.. You can always use an exterior product on interior, never use an interior product on exterior. Exterior products are doped with a much higher level of UV inhibitors.

Personally I like the Interlux Gold (Ford, Chevy?) as it handles closer to a traditional varnish than Epithane but that's just me. Thin Coats, a tack rag in between, and reasonable care should give you a result you will be happy with with either product.
