Quick to apply

Review Summary

I purchased this on sale to sample on some projects. Although easy to apply, unlike the brush-on ply it seemed like I had not applied enough to the surfaces. It dries quicker that the brush-on poly and gets in where you may not be able to apply with a brush.

Nice finishing product

Review Summary

I've used this product on many of my wood projects with much success. It's easy to use because it's a wipe on finish and drys quickly with little to no dust attraction. It is kind of pricey especially her in Ca. where the nature Nazi's have pressured this state to eliminate many of the really good finishing products. I've tried making my own blend , but so far it doesn't seem to work as well as this does. You can purchase this online through Amazon.com.
Their price on the gloss has been the lowest I've found so far($15.59 a quart as of Feb 2014). I've found the lowest price on the Satin at Dixieline Lumber for around $17.00 a quart( as of Feb. 2014) The down side of this is that to get a really good finish you have to wipe on at least three coats. Having said that I much prefer this over spraying or brushing on a comparable finish as the results are much more sure and predictable. If you want some really good tips on application go to Amazon.com and read Mr Laughlin's review, under Wipe-on quart gloss. He share's some really good tips. I was sick of paying the Pro's thousands of dollars to paint my cabinet doors and face frames when I knew I could do it for less and with better results using this product.
