There are better wood moisture proectors than varnish. Varnish essentially sits on the wood surface, and once it is rubbed off or peels from age, so goes the protection. A more penetrating type finish is better I think, though not so shiny and cosmetic. How these would affect brakeing and pad rubber? I have some ideas about making wood rims and choice of materials. If anyone plans to do it, feel free to contact me off list.
