Try using Penetrol. Add 2 or 3 ounces per quart of varnish. It won't effect the properties of the varnish but will help it flow and keep a wet edge longer. In a cool shop, using Penetrol, I don't even have to tip off after using a roller. Available at any paint store or big box like Lowes or Home Depot. Be sure to get the kind for oil based paint. Works much better than thinner for what you want.
