Within the light of the information in the literature; the purpose of this study is to determine the changes occurring in the surface color of the wooden varnishes (cellulosic, polyurethane, synthetic and water-based) in different properties applied to the wooden material surfaces with heat treatment in high temperature values (190[degrees]C, 200 [degrees]C and 210[degrees]C).
