25 years ago, my entry door started with a stain and a layer of lacquer,
which was not worth a darn. Fifteen years ago, I used "Furniture Restorer"
to smooth out the badly weathered lacquer finish.
I then gave it two coats of spar varnish. Now the varnish is
weathering/deteriorating. It is not coming off, just looks weathered and
dark in some areas.
The door is heavily carved and paneled. I can't see how I could possibly
remove the old finishes. The wood is solid mahogany.
Can I use a "Solid Stain" on top of the old varnish? That way the exterior
finish would look uniform, without looking painted. ??
