Polishing Varnish

Question

Can you rub out or polish a non-poly long-oil varnish?—Ken Zahn

Answer

Peter Breu replies: Yes you can, but you must be very patient and allow the varnish to thoroughly dry (it might be several weeks!). I did this on a table top and the results were great. I used very fine wet sandpapers followed by rottenstone.
