the best stuff
Oil-based polyurethane is the best way to go. It gives a much tougher finish than water-based, and the smell is really not that bad and goes away quickly. To satisfy government VOC regulations, the can says you cannot spray it, but here is a secret - it sprays just fine! Of course, make sure you have adequate ventilation, and wear protection. Cleans up with mineral spirits. Can be tinted as well. I use it on guitar projects, where it polishes up to a mirror finish - the 'wet' look, with a slight yellowing that I like ( water-based does not yellow. )

This finish applies easily and dries tack-free pretty quickly. I used it mixed 1:1 with low odor mineral spirits so it flows quickly and there were no brush marks. Subsequent coats were 3:1 polyurethane : mineral spirits. This is a good choice if you want an oil base polyurethane.

That is not what we like to hear, Charo! As an oil-based coating, our 1 qt. Clear Gloss 275 VOC Oil-Based Interior Polyurethane is an oily coating. Brushes can be cleaned using mineral spirits or paint thinner. Our Varathane Water-Based Polyurethane cleans up with soap and water, and may be easier for you to work with: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-1-qt-Clear-Gloss-Water-Based-Interior-Polyurethane-Case-of-2-200041H/202057129 Rustoleum

    Hard as a rock

      Great stuff. I like slow drying.
      It is almost impossible to find oil-based, slow drying varnish. Slow drying allows the surface to level itself without brush strokes.
