Epifanes or NOT
I have a ‘59 plywood mahogany Elgin.
No rot but old checked grain.
I have tried for two years now to make Epifanes fill the grain and produce a good finish.
I simply cannot do it.
Should I give up and try a different strategy?
Use epoxy first? use a different varnish? Thin varnish 50%?
Am I simply expecting a show quality finish when it is not obtainable on such a poor wood condition?
