I am using Tried and True oil varnish for the first time and trying to get more information on how many coats I should apply to my entertainment center project. I saw the FFW online video, read the container instructions, and talked to a few folks at Woodcraft. I am getting conflicting info so I wanted to see what others may be doing. The guy on the video, Chris, seems to indicate he puts on 3 or 4 coats (or more?), the guy at Woodcraft recommended 2 coats followed with wax.
The entertainment center/bookcase I am building is 17 feet long by 8 feet tall. Adding an extra coat or two matters to me time wise so will 2 coats and wax do the job?
Thanks for any comments.
