Which is the best way to apply finsihes? Brush or Spray?
I applied the stain and am working on applying my clear coat. I have been using a brush with water based polyurethane, thin coats and sanding and steel wool in between coats. This seems fine but notice some brush marks. Thought that spraying might be better but did not know if there is other problems associated with that.
Any input would be helpful.
I totally agree with Kim C ... NEVER use steel wool with anything water based. If you don't really want to spray, have you tried one of those sponge brushes? Another option, try using wipe-on poly - it's a bit thinner. I've also used Jeffery Pike's method of using 400 grit. I've even gone so far as to use 800 grit with excellent results. I really should get a sprayer - but need so many other things first.
