    That's the beauty of mahogany, you can get such a lovely finish on it.

    OK so what do you use to get such a nice finish????, I'm about to start on the top of the dumas Miss unlimited top section, which is mahogany. i have had trouble before with my 1930 speed boat... tried the clear epoxy. and things just would never be a smooth finish.

    I've been using this for about 40 years now and can safely say that I have never found a varnish with such a good quality finish.
    My dad used to buy from the local chandler's store. And I used to keep my stock topped up each time I visited.
    Cheers Colin.
