diy uv cured finish?

ntruroNovember 8, 2011

Anyone have experience and/or recommendations regarding a DIY ultra-violet light cured finishes?

We're installing a 63" long mahogany vanity top with a top mounted sink in a bathroom. For finish, I'd like to use a marine varnish like Epifanes. However, I recently read about UV cured finishes that cure in seconds instead of the weeks required for marine varnish. The article was for the commercial production audience and I haven't found much information on-line, just mfg. claims.

TIA

The fast curing UV finishes use light that is dangerous for human exposure.

Not really a DIY thing.
