What are the differences between all the different types of clear finish.
For example there is urethane, polyurethane, varethane, varnish, lacquer,
spar finish, shellac. I'm wondering about the following properties:
water/oil based, resistance to water, resistance to wear and tear, clarity,
application, difference in looks, and any other points you might know that
I'm gonna be coating a piece of furniture that will be exposed to water on a
regular basis (fish tank stand) and I'm trying to figure out which one of
the above is best to use, and why?
