Synopsis: Andy Charron notes how water-based finishes have improved over the years and compares nine to a few tried-and true finishes.The ones he tested scored well on stain resistance, and grain raising wasn't objectionable.
They were all tested on mahogany plywood, and he evaluated their adhesion over oil-based stain, stain resistance, heat resistance, raised grain, sanding, best applicator, and appearance.For example, in testing adhesion over an oil-based stain, the author sliced into the finish with a utility knife, pressed packing tape over the cut, and waited five minutes.
Then the tape was removed.See what Charron thought of the finishes overall and which performed best.Side information gives ways to improve the appearance of water-based finishes by tinting the wood or coloring the topcoat using pigments, water-soluble dyes, or alcohol dyes...
