This is a piece of ipe, sanded to 120 and finished with three brushed-on coats of Bona Mega, a water based oxygen cross-linked polyurethane floor finish. The first light coat was rubbed back with a maroon pad, followed by two more wet coats within a day. It self leveled without any brush marks or trapped bubbles. It’s a beautiful full clear as glass gloss that needs no additional rubbing out or polishing. It’s around $50+ a gallon, but well worth it. It is the finest brushed finish that I”ve ever used.

Excellent. Thank you.. I will check out Bona Mega. I have experimented with a West System Epoxy that makes IPE like glass, but it is very fragile..

Have your say...
