I like to know if there is really difference between different brands
of polyurethane finishes. I have come across brands like MINWAX,
Benjamin Moore, BEHLEN, MOHAWK, Target Coating. Some of them are
easily avaliable at my local home department store (MINWAX) like
HomeDepot or paint shop (Benjamin Moore). Others are available through
special ordering which can be quite expensive.
As I mentioned in my previouse message, I will be doing caoting on my
table top. I need to have a smooth look and durable finish. Looks like
Poly is the best bet ( Isn't it?).
I have thought that brushing is the common technique to apply the
POLY, looks like it is not. People are talking about using different
techique like using foam, cloth and ... . Can you share your
experience on applying the finish on Horizontal surfaces like table
top and vertical surfaces like table legs? Should I dilute the POLY
before applying it? For example, on MINWAX can it was written that its
content (oil-based POLY) does not need to be thined?
Would it be OK if I use polyurethane made for Hardwood for my purpose?
thanks a lot
