General Finishes® High Performance polyurethane finishes are a unique hybrid of urethane and acrylic technology. The specialized urethane modification provides the superior toughness, durability, and water resistance necessary for high wear surfaces such as tables and cabinets. HP (High Performance) is formulated to resist foaming, prevent sagging and resist running like ordinary water based finishes. This finish contains all the consumer-friendly characteristics of a PolyAcrylic Blend including being non-yellowing and offering easy water cleanup. In addition, HP is stabilized with UV absorbers to maximize its performance and afford protection to the stains, paints, and wood underneath. High Performance is a fast drying, low odor, non-flammable alternative to conventional lacquers. It is suitable for interior woodwork, case goods, furniture, and cabinets. The free dry time is only 15 minutes with 2-4 hours between coats, which means you can finish a project in short order.

In this upcycle project, we had the opportunity to bring in a jewelry armoire from one of our Woodcraft marketing team members, Lori Haught. Lori decided rather than putting this in her Spring yard sale, why not refurbish it and give her bedroom decor an added useful piece to match other items therein. So, it was off to the Woodcraft product development department for a plan of action!

Wonderful Stain & Color
This topcoat was great for my bathroom cabinet re-do. I used your stain, then 2 coats of the topcoat, and the result was amazing. Dries very quickly too.
