This is my 2-cents on this mighty fine finish from Generals. It’s grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr8!, As Tony the Tiger would have said. I used this for the 1st time on the 3 in 1 crib that I just built for my youngest Grndson. I used a sort of “French-Ball” to apply the recommended 3 coats. Small make-up pads (believe me, I don’t use make-up)lol, inside of a pair of panty-hose….......OK, stop laughin, I don’t wear those either…....I do have a hard time goin ...

Last summer I was working on a cutting board my girlfriend and looked deeply into what i could use to finish it. I considered the normal oil and wax, however that needs to be reapplied after some time of use. I then stumbled upon this salad bowl finish by General Finishes and all i can say is WOW! The cutting board i made for her last summer still looks great and fully water proof. You can take a look for yourself: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/44940 This is after almost daily use for...

What I was looking for was a finish that would go on easily, evenly and not hide the wood, so I selected the General Finishes Oil Based Gel Urethane Topcoat. This product deliv...

General Finishes Gel Stain, a good deal

I bought some of this because I am refinishing a dresser ( saddly store bought). The dresser has been replaced by one I built. While it sat in my garage, it was noticed by a friend that wanted to relocate it to their home, but they wanted to have it refinished. So I sanded and sanded, then I dyed the unknown Malaysian wood to find out some sections did not take any dye at all, if I hadn’t sanded it myself, I would have thought there was excess glue in those places. So I put on a coa...

I had some issues getting it not to orange peel and solved that then bubbles. I tlaked to Tom at the factory and he was more than helpful. We discussed tempuarte, drying times, and the type and brand of spray gun. As my Iwata is about 10 years old it is not up to doing the water based products. It is a gravity fed gun and built in the days when oil based is all you could get. I have 4 tip sizes. 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 all of which do a fine job on oil based products. Drying time is an issue,...
