Cold, cold, cold
Hi all, In a previous life I was a painter and decorator. On colder days it takes longer to dry. Note: the more coats on cover you apply, the longer it is going to dry. Warmer days will help the process set. Place the project in a warm environment and it will set. Do not put the project in the full sun, unless in is a very warm not a hot day. The sun will warp the timber and you start the project over.
With a kitchen island bench, you can heat the area and normally the finish will set. Be careful not to thin the finish too much. If you have followed the instructions then it will set. Humidity also plays havoc with finishes as when humid the air has way to much water in it.
Lets all ask for warmer weather.
Success is getting what you want.
Happiness is wanting what you get. Dale Carnegie
