The more I use Waterlox, the less I like poly. It is thin, so I wipe it on, use multiple coats. No chance of brush strokes, dries quickly. No need to sand between coats if you wipe it on correctly. Hard finish that's easy to repair if need be. Doesn't keep well after opening unless you use some of the Bloxygen inert gas to keep oxygen out of the can so it doesn't skim over. I was going to use poly on the 17 Irish Setter cutouts I'm doing for decorating the Agility jumps at our National Specialty next month, but decided to use my Waterlox instead. 3 coats front and back so far, 4 on the edges, 2 more on the faces to go. Glad I decided to go this route. Jim.

At a minimum, I'm Pentatoxic...but most likely, I'm a Pentaholic. There seems to be no known cure. Pentatonix, winners of The Sing Off, season 3
