Re: Varnish or Urethane

Tony, Ive tryed both, and I can't get the finish I want from Urethane. I admit I do like a Glass like finish On my interior wood ! It takes longer and is more work to do varnish, but the sweet look of high gloss and depth is worth it to me ! Just my 2 cents And I guess it would depend on the type of wood also Maybe?
