How To Us A Brush When Applying Finish
I did a search on the web asking how to apply varnish and got an article that was very descriptive but also a little confushiing. The a couple points were to pour the varnish into a separate container and thin it. Then the article explained how to make long strokes in only one direction, no back and forth movements with the brush. There were other things to do that I still don't quite understand due to not knowing words in context, example, "tiping off'.
Then I did a search about how to apply Midwax, in that demo the guy dipped the brush in the original container and brushed back and forth, nothing like the article about varnish.
Because of my ignorance about the subject, I have, for the most part, gone to using Toung Oil. I wipe it on and then wipe it off after sealing the wood with Agua Coat Sealer. The results that I get are satisfactory in my opinion but I do know that there are probably better ways to add the finish, but subject seems to be pretty complex and I don't expect any simple answers to my confusion, but some basic tips and/or ideas will be appreciated.
