  1. Perfect! Time to stock the shelves. If these turn out decent ill post some pics of the overbuilt ash and white oak corn hole boards. I don't think i'll be able to watch people throwing bags at these .
  2. That sounds pretty much like what happened. It was still tacky last night and they had to be presentable by Sunday since they are a gift. I had to work with what I had and dumped acetone on it and scrubbed off the finish. I then threw down a quick coat of shellac and let it dry. I sanded the Shellac smooth and put on a coat of the Spar and this morning it was dry . I was going to brush it on this time but still couldn't resist using the Earlex I invested in . I played with the sprayer trying to get it dialed in as best as I could. I was able to get a much better thin coating t
  3. You guys rock! Ill see what the increased temperature does and hit it with the brush next time. I just got so antsy and bought this sprayer and now I have nothing to spray. All I've been doing is reading and reading and wishing I could start this project over or not at all. I just want to make something I can put in the house. These corn-hole boards are for my sister-in-law's wedding. They both graduated from UGA and are getting married in Athens so I tried something unique and am paying for it. Learned alot though on this project. I was really excited to see how much information is avai
  4. I only put on 1 coat. I sprayed with an Earlex 5500 and the standard 2mm tip. It is the first time I sprayed varnish with the gun, but I don't think it was too thick. I thinned the mix with about 30% Mineral Spirits.
  5. I didn't particularly like the look of the high gloss epoxy. In addition to that though, it is considerably more expensive and would be to cover both corn-hole boards. These will be outside on occasion and the Enviro Tex Lite Epoxy is not recommended for use outdoors. I am covering the rest of the wood and frame with Minwax Satin Spar Varnish.
  6. Thanks for the response! I threw the light on it so hopefully that will help. My "shop" is a room in a walkout basement. The temperature has been set on 70 but i'll see if I can get a heater to raise the temp more in that room. Everything was bought fresh off the shelf about two weeks ago. I used the "Envirotex Lite Pour on Finish" and let it sit for three days before I sanded it down smooth with the rest of the surface. The Epoxy was completely hard with no "tack" and sanded down easy.
  7. First post here as a brand new wood-ruin-er. Hopefully graduating to woodworker. I am making a set of corn-hole boards and they have gone out of control. I ended up engraving sports logos on them and proceeded to fill with Enviro Tex Epoxy. I picked it up at my LHS before I realized there were way better options for woodworking resources. After filling with the epoxy I covered with Minwax spar varnish and after 2 days the Spar is still tacky only over the epoxy. It just doesn't seem to be curing. I found this thread. So it seems like it is possible, but i'm not quite sure how to proc
