    No frown intended.
    Thought it looked like a confused guy with 3 question marks above his head, which was me, trying to figure out how to use a syringe for applying oil.

    Dan,
    Sorry- hope I didn't misdirect you, but the Mohawk stuff is really formulated for spraying - probably experience same thing you did with the original Varathane ultimate.

    You should try some Mohawk water based topcoats. Thick stuff, builds fast, and goes on a bit more orange-peely than a person's comfortable with. In a few hours, man, that stuff is just perfectly...

    John,
    I've been in Sketchup for 15 years now. My nephew says Fusion 360 has advantages over it, but, at this point, I'm so bonded to Sketchup, I'll likely stick to it.

    "A few" sounds like, by the time you round up and purchase the exact match, you've outspent the value of the project.
