I have to put a clear coat of finish on some red oak and I would like to keep the wood as bright as possible. Can anyone recommend a product for this? I don't do a lot of finishing and this is only for the interior of some cabinets.
I'd head to the hardware store and pick up some "wiping varnish" and wipe on 2-3 coats. You don't have to worry about taping off, overspray or brush marks. You should be able to get 3 coats on in a day if the humidity is decent.
You can make your own...50% polyurethane and 50% naphtha which will dry faster.
