Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality Have used this on a couple projects and not impressed with the quality. I much prefer the minwax to this brand as the minwax has given me a smoother finish and proven more durable to the wear and tear of my young children. I did like the quick drying time but overall disappointed in the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid! First off, I would have given this zero stars since I returned it after tirelessly trying to get a smooth finish but, to no avail. This product is too thick and dries too fast. you apply too thin you’ll get brush strokes, any more you get bubbles, which don’t settle. I’ve followed the instructions on the label and the PDF online and you just can’t work with this stuff. $25 natural brush, near empty jar and sandpaper all being returned. I did 4 coats, and wasted too much time with this stuff. Save yourself. Gloss/Colour is nice though. Lol

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used to be good This used to be really good finish. The formula or something changed and this is nowhere near professional result. I would not recommend to use this on anything that gets actual use like table top or furniture. After less than 1 year the finish starts to flake off (and no this is not a one bad batch this happens with different cans). Low quality at ridiculous price and the worst thing is HD doesn't offer any competitive alternative anymore either (what happened to MinWax?)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Satin Finish it is not! I bought this and received it in curb side delivery from Home Depot. Can't find out how to get a refund so I guess I'm stuck with it, When you buy "Satin" you expect a satin finish. It was at least Semi Gloss. Lucky I still had a competitors product to finish my project. Buyer beware.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Finish but one tip I used this product to spray a stained cabinet door. The first coat worked out perfect, level and even shine. When finished I immediately inverted the can and sprayed until there was air to clear the nozzle so I could reuse the can for the second coat. 30 minutes later I went to spray the second coat and it sputtered (small blobs) creating a not so nice 2nd coat. I am going to guess some varathane dried up in the nozzle. So I am going to suggest varathane Aerosol is a one time use unless the manufacture can respond with a solution around this issue of second use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finish on fir floors looks beautiful I really liked the product but the applicator that we were told to spread it was awful and caused so many bubbles. We applied it on stairs with a brush and it’s absolutely beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Went on smoothly without all the bumps one usually gets, so no sanding in between was needed. We did buff if after the third coat tho', using different stages of 1000+ grit sanding paper. Nice glossy shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Comparison to Water-Based Products Amazing product. Will purchase again. Matte finish hides floor imperfections. Varnish dries to a hard durable finish, which is impervious to light scratches and liquids, unlike water based varnish. Also protects wood floors from drying out with reduced humidity during the winter. Applied 3 coats. Major odour dissipates within few hours. Dry within 5 hours but left to dry at least 12 hours before light sand and recoating.

Can you finish painted particleboard or MDF with this product?

Asked by: Jbeca
I am not a professional but, from experience with what I believe to be a similar product,my opinion is that as long as the surface is COMPLETELY sealed by the paint it should be o.k.

Is this product food-safe?

Asked by: TBear
I don't believe it is, if you are building or refinishing a cutting board or something that is going to used for food - try WATCO Butcher Block oil and finish -

I plan on keeping the woods natural colour and not staining. The wood is alder, do I still need to use a wood conditioner?

Asked by: CaraP
Hi CaraP, No wood conditioner is required if you plan on only applying our Varathane Oil-Based Clear Finish.

Is this product good for restoring old wall wood panels? the paneling still has a nice pecan color.

Asked by: ed82
Yes, Varathane Pro Finisher would be an excellent choice for wood panels. If you suspect a previous coating has already been applied, clean the surface well, and scuff it with 220 grit sandpaper before applying the Varathane Pro Finisher.

I'm looking for a clear coat oil-based for an external stained wood door. Can this be applied on external stained wood door? If not, can you suggest an alternative.

Asked by: JJJJ
The Varathane Pro Finisher is designed for interior use only. However, Varathane does manufacture an Exterior Oil-Based Finish that would work very well to finish your stained wood door.

What is the temperature rating of this product when it is cured? I'm looking to use it for a workbench table top in my uninsulated garage.. Would it be OK if I assumed it's environment reached between -40C & 120C?

Asked by: Benny
Hi Benny, Once our Professional Oil-Based Clear Finish has cured, depending on the number of coats (3-4 weeks), the coating will be fine in those temperatures.

Can I use this over a lacquered finish?

Asked by: Snowbird
Hi Snowbird, As long as the lacquered finish has dried hard, we do not see an issue with applying the Professional Oil-Based finish overtop. However, this is something you would have to test on your own. That being said, lacquer finishes are a harder finish and does not require another clear finish overtop.

Hi! I'm applying this spray over a dry coat of Varathane's oil-based stain on pine. I'd like to embed glitter in the top coat by dusting it over the wood before/during spraying. Will this work? Will the glitter "adhere" when the finish coat dries?

Asked by: Anna
Hi Anna, Unfortunately, we have not tested this method so we cannot comment if it will work. Once the finish dries, you may need to use an adhesive to allow the glitter to stick to the surface.
