            Great topcoat over color coats
            I have been using interior Varathane water based poly for years as a topcoat for all my indoor trim work. It gives good gloss and does not yellow. So far I have used this exterior spar varnish formulation on a storm door and a lantern. The color coats for the storm door were latex, the lantern had a combination of enamel and latex. For the door, the varnish was applied with brush and pad. For the lantern, the varnish was applied with a cheapo HVLP spray gun (unthinned). Once dry, Varathane can be sanded and polished to a mirror finish, but I don't bother for these outdoor projects. No deterioration so far after several brutal winters and the harsh Summer sun. I am really impressed with modern waterborne technology.

            Wood Sealer
            I have finished the remodel of the house. The staining and sealing of the front door and exterior columns were the last project on the remodel. I used Varethane to seal the columns after restain and on the new front door after it was stained. I'm confident that our updated look adds curb appeal to the house. Many of my neighbors have commented that the house has a fresh and updated appearance.

            Smooth and Clear
            This urethane went on easily, dried quickly and had a good finish. It was easy to use and still looks great. We used the urethane for an outdoor barbecue table and had many compliments during our 4th of July party!
