I was leafing through some old FWW and found a piece by Chris Becksvoort in which he says he has gone to this exclusively and he explains why. (#152, p. 74)
I had not heard of it. It’s sold by Rockler and Woodcraft and others.
I have just completed a project and I used wiping varnish comprised of Sherwin Wms’ Satin polyurethane (NOT fast drying) and mineral spirits and I’m very pleased with the results. I think the cooler weather (never over 33o F. during the day) really helped slow the cure so it flattened really well. I varied the recipe by intuition, depending on where it was in the sequence.
Still, I’m curious about Tried and True.
