      Been using Minwax for years. Easy to apply with brush. Dries really quick. There were complaints about foaming up, make sure you don't shake the can. Stir it with a paint stick, shaking it will make it foam up and bubbles. Make sure you wait between coats or you will get white streak in your coating. Let it dry at least two hours then sand with a very fine sandpaper 220 grit to ensure an even finish and proper adhesion of additional coats. Wipe down after sanding to get all the dust off. Three coats is recommended. Final coat wait 3+ hours before handling it and 24 hours before normal use.

      Pros: Even Application, Easy to Apply, Easy Instructions, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Protection, Looks Great, Dries Quickly
