As a recent convert, I feel compelled to jump in here and offer up my 2 cents on general finishes. I used their stain and high performance poly on a recent product and was initially really skeptical about the price (it seemed to be about 2-3x the price of a comparable minwax product at home depot), but man was it worth it. I distinctly remember at one point in the project thinking to myself “wow, so this is how you get a finished surface to feel totally smooth”. I was building a plywood cabinet, and after about 6 coats of high performance, it felt as smooth to the touch as a granite countertop. I had a lot of frustration on previous products, but after I did one with general finishes I can tell you I won’t be going back, it’s that big of a difference.
