Sand existing wood or new wood to obtain a smooth, uniform surface. Stir contents thoroughly prior to and during application. Never shake.

Amazing Results
By Joyce from Oregon

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 POLYURETHANE FOR FURNITURE
By PJ Reynolds from Rochester, Michigan

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!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

great product
By Beaver owner of Walts Rod & Custom from Rochester, NY

i used this product for the wood in my 1928 Model A Ford and it came out wonderful. After laying down the first few coats with a brush I followed a quick sanding with 220 and shot with HVLP gun strait no thinner and ended up with a great finish.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

On interior stairway, seems ideal
By Al from New Bern, NC

I used the satin finish over existing sealer. Dried overnite for barefoot traffic, hard after a day. Be sure to thoroughly mix it if it's satin, or you'll get a glossy finish. One coat was sufficient in my application.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

So far, so good
By Reb from Minneapolis, MN

Circa 1850 Polyurethane was used to refinish teek and holly floorboards from my 1966 Hood 43. Before each coat I lightly rubbed down previous coat with with medioum pad, cleaned with mineral spirits and tack clothe. Filtered Polyurethane from can and used foam brush for application. I applied three thin coats of Polyurethane followed by two thicker coats. It just kept getting better looking with each coat. I gave it 24 hours to dry in between each coat...in a warmer environment it would have certainly dried faster. Now time will tell how durable it is.
