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!

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.

On interior stairway, seems ideal

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.

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.

I used this to refinish my kitchen cabinets and genuine oak floors in a 60+ year old house. The pictures speak for themselves!As long as the surface is prepared correctly, this poly does an incredible job of bringing out the natural grain of the wood. It self-levels and dries to a very hard finish. I am not a professional by any means but I think I achieved professional results using this poly. I would recommend it to anybody. It's a bit pricey, but worth every penny.

best poly

this is a great old style poly that is better than anything currently available in CA due to the asinine air quality control rules they have here. All the envio-friendly polys they sell here are far inferior. I use it on furniture and cabinets but wouldn't hesitate to use it on a floor. It levels great and sets up and actually hardens as opposed to the locally sold polys. The dry times on the label are on the aggressive side but if you have the right temperature, application, air circulation and humidity they are realistic but I agree that for the average environment and application more time is generally required. 90% of my applications are spray and 10% brush or wipe. If I did a floor I would roll it and brush edges/small areas.

Great for indoor use, best to have good clean finish for strong adhesion. Use as directed! I agree with other posts, 3 to 4 hours is probably pushing it on dry time.

Longer dry time

Product works as advertised except there is no way it dries in 3 or 4 hours. If you want three coats try about 12 hours between each coat.

We used this on our stairs that are wood. It dries fast and gives a gloss and shine that regular poly cannot. We used the high gloss.
