I'm making some new boat locker covers from what may well be the world's most expensive plywood. It's a mahogany board and I've given teak trims to it, then five coats of traditional varnish. So far so good. Here's the problem - if I try to apply a finish coat, I always get some small flying creature embedded in it. I've tried to control the environment by applying varnish in a workshop, in an office with no luck. Does anyone have a method of keeping these little creature off the varnish surface till it has dried enough not to trap them?

Could you create some sort of polythene 'tent' around the hanging/supported board either big enough to stand in and apply or with an arm hole that you can close off after use?

Sorry if that's nonsense.

Paint when the weather is colder - but may effect the drying time?
Fumigate your room with all openings closed.
