I successfully put on 2 coats of oil-based Polyurethane on my hardwood floors this weekend (layered thickly), when some spots started "wrinkling" when I started lightly sand the floor to prep for the 3rd coat. The 2nd layer of varnish tore in spots, causing the wrinkling. QUESTION: Since I had to put on a 3rd coat anyway, will it cover these spots? Or will they become more prominent? How do I repair them? Thanks!

you will have to let the varnish completely

dry and harden. then sand away all the

"wrinkles" and start over. Do NOT apply

varnish in thick coats. That is the best

I can tell you, other than sand the whole

floor and start over completely.

You applied the varnish too thick. All you can do is wait for it to harden the sand smooth and try again. Since the varnish is on thick it will take a long time to dry properly.

You could try using a flat scraper and scraping it off then let the residue harden.

If you apply the varnish too thick, all you can do wait for it to harden and sand the hardwood flooring and try again . This time, be more conservative with it.
