For years I have been using Deft Brushing Lacquer for my woodworking project. Typically, one coat of semi-gloss over three coats of gloss.

Now because of environmental regulations it is no longer sold in Southern California.

Can anyone recommend a “water-bourne” acrylic as a substitute

Thanks, for any help,
Tenderfoot Bob

General Finishes does well for me.

Yea, gotta love California on that one. Oil base finishes are Almost gone too, only a couple stains left. I had gotten to a point of loving oil based poly(thinned) as a wiping finish and now no more.
As to your question, I have read and heard General Finishes is really good too.
