I’m thinking about making some coasters. What is the best finish to put on that will work with a wet glass?

IMO, polyurethane is what I would use. Quite a number of coats, more than 3, would make these darn near waterproof … but not dishwasher safe as there is just too much heat.

Also, Waterlox is a good alternative to polyurethanes for a waterproof finish.

General finishes Arm-R-Seal.
It’s a great wipe on poly; very durable against heat, moisture, etc.

Yes NiteWalker, Arm-R-Seal is indeed very good. I used it one several projects including which is still in use every day since I built it and still looking good.

The formula must have changed as the Arm-R-Seal I bought in Illinois could not be used in California but I no longer see those restriction on the GF web site.
