  • Don Kondra's Finish

    I'm building a rocking chair out of cherry and will soon be ready to finish it.

    Would Don Kondra's finish mix be suitable for this? Would more varnish in the final 2 coats be a good idea? Would "Tried and True" Varnish Oil be an alternative?

    Good question John

    Can't say how it will wear as I've never finished a chair with it...

    It does go well with cherry and based on how long it lasts on a kitchen table top I wouldn't be shy about recommending it especially since it is so easily renewed.

    But, if you change the ingredients you are on your own

    Cheers, Don

      I've been using TnTVO lately. Love working with it but I don't think I would use it on a chair. Maybe it's just my amateur knowledge and minimal experience but I prefer to use it on surfaces that get seen rather than used or exposed to moisture.
