Thanks for the tip on this water-based topcoat. I am very interested in finding a suitable replacement for lacquer based products, but I have a few questions for you.

  • What about the grain raising tendency of water based products?
  • Do you not have to wet the wood and sand off the raised fibers before you can use a water based topcoat?
  • Do you think that the finish is comparable to the lacquer based as to the beauty of the finish?

The grain raising problem creates another step in finishing, doesn’t it?
