  • Minwax Poly

    Can someone loan me experience on Minwax Wipe on Polyacrylic? I need to top coat a table in our new conference room at work and need to make sure this stuff will be dried and cured (no tackiness, etc) by Thursday morning.

    Also, does it really wipe on?

    Wipe on Poly is really just regular poly mixed 50/50 with mineral spirits. Polyacrylic is a water based poly. Both will dry fast especially in warm weather. The only real draw back to wipe on poly is you have to put on more coats. The draw back with Polyacrylic is it will raise the grain some so a good sanding will be required between the 1st and second coat.

      I'm learning a lot "watching" Bruce do the cabinets, and one thing is finish can dry in an hour or so, but it takes a full month to cure. It may not feel tacky but it isn't cured either. You can't wax it until it cures.

          Actually, it turned out better than I thought. Our salesman and his boss used it for a client meeting Thursday and let's just say the cost of the renovations is MORE than covered.

            I'm pretty sure the blade was in right. It was an 1 3/4 piece of poplar. Once I was done cutting I couldn't even get the piece to come apart out of the block. Which as I remember it, indicates to much pushing and making the blade bend.

            For what it's worth I cut an ornament out of pine and...

            My wife got the vaccine shot in 2011 and 4 months later came down with shingles. It wasn't a light case either.

            My aunt said she found a cure for shingles: She heard that rubbing Dr. Tichenors antiseptic on it would stop it. She got in the tub and poured some on. As she tells it: "When...

            I also cannot perceive making that many of anything. I just finished about 30 of the mini birdhouses and am ready to start something new.

            I also have used the alcohol and shellac method. It really speeds up the finishing process. If the surface is left a little rough, a little touch up...

            I had trouble cutting once with a new blade and then discovered I had it backwards.
