I have a solid pine kitchen which has been coated in orange varnish.
The plan is to strip this off the work tops, stain them and then varnish them to make them ultra hard wearing. What is the best varnish for this please? I have seen Ronseal “Diamond Hard” - would this be the right sort of stuff? What I have at present, although hideous, is heat and water proof, and hasn’t marked in the 30 odd years the kitchen has been in…
The second question is where the units have been made off site and then installed there are a couple of joins. Over the years these have opened slightly, so obviously i’d like to fill them before staining and varnishing. What should I use for this please? I’d like something that will take stain so it’s the same colour as the work tops but i don’t know if this exists!!
Thanks in advance!
