Thanks again all for the replies!!

I went out and bought a china bristle brush, it does seem to help with the brush strokes, but for some reason doesn’t hold as much varnish. Maybe I was applying too much with the foam brush, but then again, I wasn’t getting the orange peel effect with the foam brush.

I also am applying it rather quickly, then doing a single leveling out stroke which also seems to help.

@AlaskaGuy What I’m trying to achieve is a nice mirror like finish to the surface of the chess board. The first time round I had left it for 1 week before doing anything more to it. This next time it will be left for 2 weeks due to work scheduling so the varnish itself should be good and cured!

Thanks again all, I’ll try and keep you posted!!
