Great finish, applies smoothly, and easy clean up!
I'm using Varathane Ultimate Polyurethane to smooth and seal some oak-stained wainscoting in the bedrooms and closets of my vacation home -- for some reason the previous owner left off any sort of finish. The stuff is consistent -- minimal stirring gets it ready for use, and applies evenly with a brush. The material is kind of thin, so I did need to take extra precautions against spatters, runs, and drips. It dries to the touch in about an hour, and to sand and recoat in about 4 hours. At least three coats are required (two gloss coats and a final satin coat - using only satin for all coats tends to get a bit too cloudy.) That's too long to leave a dirty brush, so I've gotten some experience with cleaning brushes. My poly bristle brushes clean up very easily with an initial rinse and kneading under warm water, a brief soak in the sink with warm water and 2 oz of ammonia, and a final rinse or two. I can honestly say I've never had a brush clean up this easily! The resulting finish looks great!

Really nice product. Did what it was manufactured for and above that point, it cleaned up SUPER EASY !! I used warm water to clean up my Wagner sprayer, which was used to apply it to the area. Nothing about this product was worthy of a negative word, I liked it and highly recommend it.

I'm using this product on a basement remodeling project where I'm enclosing the staircase leading down into my basement with 3/8" plywood beadboard. After I cut the panels to the dimensions needed, I sand them with 100-grit on a variable-speed random-orbit sander with dust extraction, then smoothen them with 150-grit, then finally with 220-grit. This gives a silky-smooth wood surface ready for finishing. After carefully cleaning all sawdust, I liberally coat them with the Varathane Clear Gloss Polyurethane, using a mini sponge roller and backbrushing with a good quality synthetic bristle brush. Allowing generous drying time (recommend a few hours), I sand again lightly with 320-grit, clean the sawdust, and apply a second coat. The resulting mirror lustre is ultra-smooth to the touch and great protection of the surface for any traffic area.

Love how fast the water base polyurethane dries.I can get multiple coats daily on my project. I have been using the oil based polyurethane forever.. good product.. but the water based is the only way to go.
