Re: varnishing ?
Posted by Chris Taylor on Sep 19, 2005
You need to sand to give the surface some "tooth" for the varnish to adhere to. Don't worry, the varnish will bring up a rich bright finish in the end. As for grits, use what you need to get efficiently to a smooth 220. If you have a lot of runs and bumps, start by using a sharp paint scraper. I agree that 80 grit sounds a bit aggressive and would need a light hand on the ROS. I scrape and then go straight to 150 then 220.
