Varnish (including polyurethane) by itself is a great finish. It produces a clear finish with a lot of depth; has superior water, abrasion, solvent and heat resistance, and it has good rubbing and polishing qualities. However, it can be finicky to apply if you’re not adept at brushwork, and it’s notorious for becoming embedded with dust – because it dries slowly.
 
An alternative, which might give you the best of both worlds, are shop-made blended finishes. The results they produce can be very satisfying. Basically, there are two types of these finishes – wiping varnish and oil/varnish blends.
