Any advise on best finish for coffee tables i have made?
Wood sanded to 1000 grit.
Iron bark -
Interior use only.
Best product and application methods to ensure a durable long lasting finish
The traditionalists amoungst us would say Shellac/French Polishing.
The rest would most likely use Polyurethane.
When using Polyurethane personal preferance is on brushing/roller or spraying, you may have brushmarks or if you try spraying too thick it may run.
Shellac is buffed on and takes ages to do.
Polyurethane may not stick to pine as well as we would like, nature of the beast.
