I've finally got round to making a collar for my keezer. I'm in the process of staining it with some bond all jarrah stain and varnish. I'm the first to admit I hate painting, but I've got to say that 2 coats in it looks like crap compared to others I've seen on here. Brush marks, uneven stain. Another really the right place for this I suppose, but has anyone got any tips (other than spraying)?
