It make take some work to feather the edges where one room meets another, but you should be able to do one room at a time. At worst you might wind up with a slight line across the threshold, which nobody but you would ever notice....

There is something...in those pieces of wood. (Detailed enough for you?) Ok, so I would have initially said temperature until you mentioned it was only specific pieces, which leads me to think moisture, but even that would cross pieces... My best suggestion is sand those spots down, clean them with a solvent dampened rag, lacquer thinner maybe (don't ...

That looks to my eye like a water-based polyurethane, and it looks like the first coat may not have fully dried before you shot on the second coat, then the floor temperature changed fairly radically (probably warming up) before the second coat was fully cured. The uncured first coat would have expanded with the warmth and tried to ooze out under the second ...

We had a conference room table at my work with a polyurethane finish on it that was flaking off. Since I am a nerd, I measured the thickness of one of these flakes: .003 inches. FWIW. I also measured the thickness of a few other things to compare this to: a thin planer shaving was .001". A noticeably thick planer shaving: .01" In a recent blog post at ...

Finish is very different from paint in this regard, paint (particularly latex) builds much heavier and never really cures as hard as a good finish so it always feels grabby on sliding surfaces. The first coat of any finish doesn't really add any thickness as it mostly soaks into the would fiber. And unless you plan on adding some very heavy or numerous ...

Wet and dry surface coating film thickness calculations are complicated and dependent on several factors (varnish/paint solids content, applicator, application method), an "average" per coat thickness, if one was pressed to give it, would be 35 microns dry thickness for alkyd varnish. Paints vary widely. Why do you not paint or varnish after assembly?
