Hey guys. Trying to get a real nice smooth clear has been tough. I've been using the water base general finish gloss clear and I either am not doing it right or I just don't like the product.

Two things:

1. I have a cabinet that is poplar/wormy maple/poplar (planks joined together in that order). The wormy maple...ok pretty smooth and clear...the poplar...kinda fuzzy, semi smooth, kinda spotty. Well is it just soaking up the clear? I've done a ton of coats.

2. What I would really like to see is a thick protective gloss coating. (I don't want to buy the clear Bar Top hardening stuff) just maybe a new product. Spray or brush. The water base general finish just doesn't give me what I want.
