Recommended for use on all interior wood surfaces; including floors, cabinets, doors, furniture, and paneling. Available in GLOSS (1818), SEMI-GLOSS (1817) and SATIN (1819).

Circa 1850 Fast Dry Polyurethane can be applied onto bare, stained or finished wood.
Sand existing wood or new wood to obtain a smooth, uniform surface. Stir contents thoroughly prior to and during application. Never shake.
On unfinished wood, thin first coat with 10% mineral spirits. Wipe or brush on a thin coat of Circa 1850 Fast Dry Polyurethane using a lint-free cloth, a pure bristle brush or a lambskin applicator. Apply evenly with long strokes in the direction of the grain.
Allow to dry for at least 3 hours and sand lightly using very fine sandpaper (220) or steel wool (0000). Remove all dust and apply a second coat as above. If a third coat is desired, resand and apply as above.

Used to refinish sailboat's sole boards. Stripped to bare wood and sanded to a 220- grit finish. Thinned the first coat 10%. After three coats the finish was very even and nice but not as glossy as anticipated. Some areas appeared cloudy. Tried a fourth coat after light 320-grit hand sanding but had the same satin-like results. I had purchased two quarts so tried the second quart for a fifth coat and now have the expected high gloss and with no cloudiness. Came to the conclusion something just wasn't right with first quart. Recommend wearing a high-quality vapor respirator when applying this product and if used in an enclosed area to expect somewhat offensive off-gassing for, in my case, more than a week. Very pleased with final results.

Used the satin finish on a reclaimed fir floor for my cabin. Needed a hard finish, as the wood was so soft and I wanted no splintering if in sock feet. It is gorgeous.....almost like an old wax finish. Product is super forgiving. Blends beautifully.

EXCELLENT PRODUCT TO USE FOR FURNITURE FINISHING. DOES NOT YELLOW OR FADE ORIGINAL PAINT/STAIN CLAIRITY WHEN APPLIED. DRYING TIME WAS 6 TO 8 HOURS FOR HANDELING OF WOOD SURFACES. CAREFUL NOT APPLY IN COOLER TEMPERTURES - YOU WILL NOTICE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR DRIED FINISH . . . MAINTAIN CONSTANT TEMPS WHEN DRYING SURFACES. . . TWO COATS WILL "BLOW YOUR MIND" WITH THE BEAUTY OF THIS FINISH . . . I DEFINITELY WILL USE THIS PRODUCT AGAIN!
