While faffing around with the Crappy Coffee Table What Has Sentimental Value and Can't Be Conveniently Tipped Off the Edge of the Deck (CCTWHSVCBCTOED) I was looking for cheapest varnishes I could use on it, and by far the cheapest is BP's Timber Protect, e.g. this one, manufacturer's page here. However I'm very dubious of the "one coat" claim though, there's no way you could make a single-coat varnish work, and there's close to zero real information on it available on either the Bunnings or BP pages. Does anyone have any experience with this?

My thoughts are this is thicker its a varnish, plus satin finish. If you want real gloss go 2 coats of this.

That's three times the price, and probably about ten times the value of the CCTWHSVCBCTOED.

Not a good idea with satin varnishes since the flatting agent is cumulative so each layer reduces the transparency, so I'd potentially need to apply gloss first as a sealer coat and then finally satin over the top.

 

 

Which is why I was trying to find out whether anyone had any experience with using the supposed one-coat varnish...

I've recently been using some Resene Aquaclear poly. The instructions are 3 coats min, 4 for new work. After just one coat it was obviously patchy.
