I was contemplating how to build a strong, sturdy storage
cabinet to hold my finishes. I did not
want a metal cabinet but wanted the adjustability of a metal cabinet’s shelves,
as well as a surface on the shelves that could be cleaned easier than wooden

Tested other water based finish from big box store and this product beats it hands down. I roller it on with a foam roller, the stuff drys quickly so the roller worked best for me. I have had to thin a few cans as it came too thick from the factory. The stuff cures so quickly I am able to complete a project in one day. Roll on finish, wait an hour or two, lightly sand smooth, roll on next coat, wait an hour or two, lightly sand and put last coat on. I have used about 3 gallons of this product this last summer and 3 coats seems to be the magic number. But when you can sand it in two hours it is no problem. I finished a large coffee table with it and was able to polish the last coat after waiting over night curing. It would take days for oil based to cure enough for that. It costs a lot more, but you really get what you pay for in this product.
Works great as advertised.
Used on my 3rd semi-big project. This stuff works just as well as the brands generally available at the big box stores.
