Absolutely superior product. Never yellows, goes on smoothly, and provides a durable, long lasting finish. It’s the only poly top coat I’ll use and I refinish a lot of furniture for my small business. Highly recommend for all the qualities above but also the ease of soap and water clean up.

I have been working on refinishing a family heirloom 100 year old china hutch. After completely stripping the old finishes (paint, stain and varnish), I applied the Varathane Water Based trio of refinishing products which consisted of water based prestain, water based stain and water based polyurethane. 1qt of the prestain and stain were enough, but I needed an extra quart of the clear satin water based interior polyurethane to finish the project. This is the first time using a water based stain and polyurethane and I am not sure I would use water based stain/polyurethane again. Clean up was easy, but I found the water based polyurethane difficult to work with. The water based polyurethane dried so quickly, it was hard to control brush marks. You have to work fast! I was working in the garage and some days were so warm, the polyurethane dried almost as fast as I brushed it on and brushing over the dried polyurethane caused inconsistencies in the finish that needed sanding and never gave me a professional result. The label clearly states temperature ranges, but I applied while definitely too warm. The polyurethane lifted some of the stain and mixed with the polyurethane causing it not to dry clear, but with milky spots. I had to make sure to clean up any areas that had milky residue. Overall the project turned out nicely, but there are certainly many imperfections. If you know what to expect and don't mind a few imperfections, then water based stain and polyurethane are good options for refinishing projects.

Great natural protection
I used this on an oak desk I built and it was the first time I used a water based poly. I brushed the first coat on and it dried to the touch within an hour. I ended up spraying subsequent coats on with an HVLP spray gun with a 1.7 mm tip to save time. I sanded only the desk top between coats and put the entire quart on the desk. It came out phenomenal. This poly does not have the amber tint that oil based polyurethanes do. The wood looks clean and natural.

The project was tedious and challenging but totally worth it. Steps I used are as follows (with lots of drying time in between): sand the tile with 150 grit sandpaper, deep clean, caulk the grout lines to disguise flaws (we had a lot of cracks in grout, 2 coats of Kilz bonding primer, 3 coats of base gray chalk paint, 1 coat of linen white chalk paint, then fine paint detailing to make the edges sharper since some of the paint bleeds through the stencil (I used a clean old makeup brush). I finished up with 3 coats of Rust-Oleum Satin finish polyurethane to protect everything. I used spray glue to try and prevent bleeding by spraying the stencil, then rolling on the white paint. Even though I used gorilla spray glue, I had some bleeding so I used the makeup brushes to clean up the edges. The glue was helpful; when I tried without it, the bleeding was much worse. Toward the end, I cut the Nagoya Tile Stencil to make getting around the nooks and crannies easier. If you have a little space you might want to buy two so you have one to trim down.
