So I'm a first time Ziricote user. I have admired it for years and finally have a chance to use it! I did sample pressings and then sprayed them with non yellowing, clear conversion varnish. They are now very dark even with the clear varnish,to dark!? All the pictures I've seen of this wood seem to be just beautiful and rich looking. Is it possible that a water based finish would be the answer? Any thoughts or suggestions?

I have loved using ziricote, very beautiful wood! Did not seem to be too dark when I finished it, and I did use conversion varnish. Maybe yours is just extra dark. Water based finish should help some. Give it a try.

I tried the water based polyurethane. That makes a difference,much lighter in color.
Darryl. What conversion varnish do you use? I used ML Campbell Klearvar satin on this particular sample.

It was quite some time ago and was a brand called Sadolin. They were out of Canada from what I remember. Have no idea if they are even in business anymore.
