Great concept but.....poor results

Review Summary

I used this product once because I was attempted to complete it in hopes of skipping a step. This product has a great concept but the polyurethane and stain never stayed completely mixed, it kept seperating in the can, like oil and water. After a couple of coats, I did not like the finish and had to star the task of removing the finish and starting over. I would recommend to anyone stain and polyurethane seperately.

worked OK

Review Summary

I used this on a hard wood rocking chair about 30 years ago. The finish itself held up well over the years and the finish seemed to come out pretty evenly. Although I do think you will get better results by applying the stain and finish separately. This is a good option for the do it yourself homeowner who wants to get it all done at once and isn't worried about a craftsman finish.
