Varnishing dining room table

Posted by allanj (My Page) on

I have just recently finished restripping and staining a dining room table top. The stain took fine and dried evenly. When I varnished the table top the vernish did not dry evenly. There are like little holes or blotches in the finsih all over the table top. I sanded the top and varnished a second coat and the same thing happened. I then restripped the entire top to bare wood. Restained the top and when I varnished the same thing happened again. I am at wits end as to why this is happening. I refinished the chairs with the same stain and varnish with no problems. Please help
