marshalltjones Posted January 29, 2020 Report Share Posted January 29, 2020 What do you guys think would be the best finish for wooden drink coasters? I've tried Nitro Lacquer. Some water makes it through the finish and the coaster cups a teeny bit but then flattens back out when dry. I like water white, so I am considering maybe a CAB Acrylic or pre-cat CAB Acrylic. Could also do Precat Lacquer, but its kinda yellow. Polyurethane looks too plastic-y. And using an oil rub doesnt really provide any protection. I want to do this with the least amount of time and sanding. I like the nitro lacquer because you dont have to sand between coats and it dries quick. CAB acrylic would be similar but I dont know if it provides any more water resistance. I hear good things about Precat Lacquer, but I bilieve you have to sand between coats. Thoughts?
