    Which is the best varnish for a perfect mirror like look? Which is the best varnish for maximum resistance for water, humidity...? And can varnish be used as an adhesive? It is quite similar tu glue, sticky, shiny and once dried, really solid

    No expert here so I could be off the mark, but:<br>Mirror finish is fine sanding and polishing.<br>Water resistance.... dunno. One that's completely dry?!?! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br>Varnish isn't for gluing.
     

  3. To water absorption ..... Linseed oil helps,<br>or fat .....<br>Can it go faster, .......<br>Man walks into the kitchen, get the fryer, and places the part in there!<br>The water in the timber will rule boiled, and closed pores with grease!<br>Surprisingly, the report does not spin then.<br>If you take liquid fat, the color of the wood remains in-firm, it changes as the linseed oil .... earlier attempts to make!<br><br>Gegen Wasseraufnahme ..... hilft Leinöl,<br>oder Fett.....<br>Das geht auch schneller, .......<br>Mann geht in die Küche, holt die Friteuse, und legt das Teil da hinein!<br>Das Wasser im Holz wird herrausgekocht, und die Poren mit Fett verschlossen!<br>Erstaunlicherweise, richt die Schleuder dann nicht.<br>Wenn man Flüssiges Fett nimmt, bleibt die Holzfarbe so, bei Festem, verändert sie sich wie beim Leinöl.... vorher Versuche machen!<br><br><br><br>Linseed oil is not explosive, not heat, or lying around the rag!<br>Leinöl ist selbstentzündlich, nicht erhitzen, oder den Lappen rumliegen lassen!<br>

    I use two coats of parquet floor varnish. Very smooth glossy finish, extremely tough and durable, waterproof. The second coat must be dried in an oven for one or two hours at 50°C because it takes forever to dry at room temperature. It brings out the wood grain very nicely, too.

    Thanks Mojo, now I get it. Yeah, I guess the heat would open the pores nicely and suck the oil in deep. They'd close as it cooled, expelling excess oil and you could buff it after. Nice idea, just don't so it in Mom's/Wife's fryer or your SS won't be the only thing cooked! I'd imagine one could use this method with different oils as long as you keep the temp. below the flash point of the oil. Bees wax/oil blends would be good too. You can get deep fryers that allow you to put the item in the basket, close the lid, then crank the basket down into the oil. This would be safer for sure. Deep fryers can be had for cheap at thrift stores. Might have to keep an eye for one. Now, can you get darker wood color the longer you leave it in there? <br>How long did you cook it for Thorsten?
