I'm building a door of CVG Fir. It looks great, and before I varnish
it, I wanted to even out the color, so it would have a more consistent
orange look that Fir has. Has anyone done anything in this area? Maybe
an orange shellac followed by varnish?
Speaking of which, for a front door, is spar varnish the finish of
choice? Or is there something else that would be better? I don't want
a high gloss, but do want good protection.
