Rated 3 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not protective enough Following the recommendation of spot testing first to ensure satisfactory results; I sanded, cleaned, and then put on one coat of polycyclic using a high quality synthetic bristle brush. I went with the grain as well when applying. I let it dry for a DAY and then sanded with 220 grit sandpaper cleaning all dust. I went on to apply 2 more coats. The directions say allow 3 hours for light handling and 24 hours for normal use. So I waited 24 hours and then slid a coin on the "protective" coating. It left a nice big scratch that wouldn't come off by wiping it. I then waited another 24 hours and same thing happened. A whole week later and the coin/key with LITTLE force still left a nice scratch mark. This "protective finish" is no better than any acrylic based paint out there. November 7, 2011
