The entire saloon is now resplendent in its first coat of varnish.
It took about 10hrs in total to put one coat on, so with 3 coats planned, that's two weekend's work to finish... Unless its very warm, in which case I might get it done in a single weekend.
As usual, the first heavily thinned coat largely soaks in, so a bit dull... The next will be unthinned, and then the last matt coat to finish (other than a few carefully chosen bits which will be left in gloss)
Overall, it's looking fab though... pics to follow.
