Topic tags/keywords: cypress beams cypress coffee tables question

Hello Fellow Lumberjocks:

I am working with aged Cypress beams that I have planed and plan to sand with belt sander for rustic coffee tables.

What is the best finish to use if I dont want to stain the cypress, but give it a clear coat that has a little gloss to it ?

Thank you.

CAB acrylic solvent lacquer in a medium rubbed gloss sheen. Sherwin-Williams T75F17

Or their NC lacquer, T70FT1, for a warmer tone that looks great on cypress.
