I have an issue...Saturday I put my first coat of Varnish on a box I built out of Cocobolo and Spalted Maple. The maple is dry but the Cocobolo is still tacky. It has been 3 days since I my first and only coat of varnish. What should I do?

I would strip the finish off and start over. Cocobolo is an oily wood and should be wiped down with acetone prior to finishing. Then I would put a coat of zinsser sealcoat as a barrier coat on before proceeding with the varnish.
