Default hard finish

over the years I have found that the best finish will be your industrial type, lacquer or polyurethane. the hardest finish will have a catalyst preadded or to be added when used. something to consider. later, bowdean

Best finish for what? I don't happen to like any of those three. The finish I'm using for my present projects happens to be Titebond II, thinned 50% with water, does the job quite nicely too.

I agree with JOAT. Any finish with a catalyst added tends to crack when banged hard enough. Once cracked it is almost impossible to refinish. IMHO I would avoid that.

Workmanship is not perfection; it is how well you can cover your mistakes.

So? Yours up, I'm dyslectic. You still didn't say best finishes for whatever. And I didn't suggest you use my choice, merely that it works very well for me, been using it for years now. And it's 'our', not 'are'.

I would be much more likely to use your choices of finish on metal than on wood.

if any one has a finish for what ever and for ever would be great. i am with you if it works for you do it. thanks for the spelling lesson, word choice has never been my best things in life. i never had any good luck with any water base finishes on a large scale. thanks bowdean. ps i am sorry about your dyslectic problem, hope you get better soon. later.
