Wood Finishing Nightmare
Hi. Redoing the top surface of my diningroom talbe and server. It's gloss and I want satin finish. Here's what I've done so far. Wiped the surface with Varsol. Sanded with 220 and foam brushed one coat of Varathane Satin Finish OIL. Sanded lightly with 220 again and recoated this time with a foam roller. Then I used 340 grit and because I wasn't happy with the surface, I used Varathane Polyurethane in a can. Well the surface look great. Satin and uniform in sheen. BUT when I put my hand over the surface it feels almost like faint sandpaper. Not coarse but not smooth. Soooooo I tried 600 grit and used the spray can again with the same result. Can anyone help me? I love the look, it just doesn't feel very smooth to the touch. Thanks!!
