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!

    extremely versatile - as a prep or as a top coat

    provides an excellent base to any top-coat or finish-coat. Easy to get a bubble free finish. Can be used over prior finishes (after light sanding) without having to strip to bare wood)

    Saved My Bacon on a Cabinet Job

    Built a new television/media cabinet of wood from a former cabinet. Layed on a dye, then topcoated that with urethane. Well, the urethane job didn't go so well, so I topcoated that with the SealCoat, then used a water-based lacquer over that. LOVE this stuff! I thin it down just a bit to about a 1-1/2 lb. consistency, and it does the job for me. I find it best to lay it on with a synthetic brush:)

    Way cheaper than buttons/flakes

    I built a crib with 48 slats from Alder all Mortise and tenon. 0 nails and 4 screws. WB dye then Sealcoat (lightly tinted)followed up by WB stain then WB topcoat finish. Came out like a museum peice. Perfect finish. I've used Sealcoat to seperate an oil stain from a WB topcoat and 5 years later no issues of seperation. Adds a warmth/glow to WB finishes which can have a bluish cast to them making them look plasticey (sp?) Cons: it does have a shelf life, so look at the date when you buy a can and mark the opening date on it. One year is about max. Also, if more than about 2 thick coats are applied it can craze/fracture later under the finish coat....not good, had to sand back to wood. My fault for trying to fill pores with it, instead of doing it the right way. All in all a great inexpensive product when used properly. Not really strong enough for a topcoat by itself.

    No fuss , no muss; Perfect consistency!

    The perfect sealer for porous woods to ensure even absorbtion of your stain and avoid blotching. No need to boil shellac flakes and measure ratios. Use straight or dilute 50% with denatured alcohol and you're ready to go. Apply it with a brush, sponge, foam brush, rag, or sprayer. It's absolutely fool proof!

    Not all it promises.

    This product boasts that it will both take tint well and can be used for spraying application. It's hard to tell it if didn't take the tint well or if it's just that it's much too thin to spray once tinted, but it was obvious that there we little tiny runs on the vertical surface. I used it untinted as a base coat and it seemed to spray on very well for that.
