          I have finished a couple of pieces of furniture now with this Watco wipe-on polyurethane. I am able to get an even coat with minimal drips and sags. To me, the wipe-on application process gives a better finish. Since the directions caution against shaking I put the first quart in a glass jar and used it out of the jar. Unfortunately, it glued the jar lid shut permanently. Now I just use it out of the can and have not seen a problem with bubbles in the finish. It is oil based and does off-gas for several weeks after use.

          This stuff dries way too fast. You can't maintain a wet edge. I was wiping on with a cotton cloth on a piece that was only 18" x 24". I have used Minwax Poly before, but, since Home Depot doesn't carry it in-store anymore I tried this. I ended up sanding it all off and starting over. I used Arm-R-Seal and after the first coat it looks amazing. Attached picture was done with Arm-R-Seal

            Drying time
            This brand of wip on poly starts drying before your finished even on small projects. This make the finish streak and not hiving it a good smooth finish.
