Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane
The Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane, an oil based polyurethane (more fumes are produced and mineral spirits or paint thinner is required for clean up) is one of the best polyurethanes because it dries so quickly. Other water based polyurethanes on this list take upwards of 24 hours to completely dry. This one can take as little as 10 hours with recoats. Its also great for use on both finished and unfinished wood, which just increases the number of instances that it can be used. Like the Minwax Water Based Oil-Modified Polyurethane, it also comes in three sheens, which is great because it offers more options. My favorite part of this polyurethane though is the fact that it comes in an aerosol as well, which is great if you want application to be as easy as possible.
