Topic tags/keywords: finishing

I’ve found this stuff to be my one, go to finish now. I usually wipe on and gotten great results. Today I sprayed it on a walnut bathroom cabinet I made. It appears to be slow at drying but looks glassy-smooth so far. I’ll finish it with oooo steel wool and paste wax. What were your results?

Isn’t finishing sometimes the most dreaded, but potentially rewarding part of our passion??

It wasn’t meant to be sprayed; in general oil based products are a PITA to spray and not worth the effort.

I have gotten rustoleum oil based enamels to spray by thinning with ms a bit, bit If I need to do that again I’ll just use rattle cans.

I wouldn’t have considered spraying Arm R Seal, simply because it is so slow drying, If it works for you though, then more power to you, as they say. I’m a little bit different where finishing is concerned. I love it.

I love finishing. Especially because I’m a finisher by trade.

You can spray everything if you thin it correctly. And it sounds like it’s working great for you.

I agree that it’s pretty much the best thing out there for hardwood. I guess if you have a large area spraying would work, but it’s basically a wipe on product. It really doesn’t need any wax either. Especially within a month or so after you apply it, needs time to cure and gas off.
