HD no longer carries it at my local store. I was very worried that it would work as well as the oil based product. To my great delight it works even better. My drawer fronts had the grain raise more than I am used to seeing, but it sanded easily with 220 grit paper to a glass smooth surface. Top coating with sprayed satin oil based finish took only 2 coats to provide professional results. The 1hour dry time really speeds up the process. This is now my go to sanding sealer.

Shame on me for not reading all the 1-star reviews before using this Varathane Sanding Sealer, especially the reviews that mention it remaining milky white. I used it on a birch marine plywood project, with the intent of applying Spar Urethane over it. I was told that even it is a tad white after drying, it will clear up once the urethane is applied. Not true! I am not at all happy with this sealer.

Both products are far inferior to Minwax products. I stopped my finishing and bought Minwax products from a competitor and my tables finished great. Home Depot needs to go back to Minwax products.

I've used similar sanding sealers before but chose to go Varathane to match the wood stain and spar urethane I had intended to finish my table with. I was very impressed with the quality I was able to achieve using these products.
