Table Varnish for Restaurant - Any Quick Drying Solutions?

Postby rolled_gold » Wed Dec 31, 2014 11:16 am

Got a bit of a different one here. Run a restaurant in which we have wooden tables. I think when they were put in (8 months ago) they weren't treated properly. They are kind of sticky now, is the best way to describe them. I asked in a local wood shop and they said they would probably need a decking varnish applied which would take about sixteen hours to dry and would need two coats.
Now the problem is is that we don't have a day when we are closed so 16 hours is a long time. Is there an alternative, and if not what is the best way to go about treating the tables?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Rolled Gold,
If you can live without a table for a day or two, then why not do one at a time? You could slowly work your way through until they are all done - it should onlt take you a month or so?
