We, too, had a powerboat race this past weekend here on the Willamette.
Our house is about 1/2 mile from the river but we can hear the boats
pretty clearly - sounds like a swarm of mosquitos.
True - even knowing that the best results come from waiting I sometimes
have a hard time holding back from completing a project due to having to
wait for the finish to cure. Other times I put the piece aside to cure
and then never get back to rubbing it out - this generally happens with
my turned pieces. (I've got two pieces that were lacquered late last
summer and I still haven't gone back to "color sand" and polish - d'ya
think the lacquer has cured long enough by now?
As much as I love to spray lacquer, phenolic varnish has got to be the
most user friendly film finish out there.
So easy to rub out, simple to apply, not totally offensive smelling, and
Thinned and wiped on, it's almost foolproof. Dust nib? Rub it off and
