I recently purchased some Epifanes Woodfinish Gloss for a project I have been working on that is going to go outside. The wood that I am looking to finish is a french oak. In the majorities experience, is it best to thin this product or apply as is? I’ve seen directions that say to thin it each coat, etc… I’m just wondering what would be the best…

The Wood Whisperer had a video where he refinished an exterior door with Epiphanes and it seemed pretty informative. You should be able to Google it.
