Hi, I am new to this forum and have a question about finishing a piece of white Ash, picture attached. it will be an outdoor table top. i want to use a stain to bring out the grain of the piece then finish it with a spar varnish, likely Epifanes. does that make sense? i would hate to ruin the piece of wood. WOuld I use an oil based stain and what brand would you recommend.
If there are any other thoughts on to best finish the wood I am open to any suggestions. thank you
Then you can apply the Epifanes Clear Varnish. It is important to apply at least 2 coats of the Epifanes Clear Varnish everywhere, top, bottom and sides to seal the wood completely. At least 3 coats to finish.
