Minwax Water Based Oil-Modified Polyurethane
The Minwax Water Based Oil-Modified Polyurethane is the best polyurethane because its great for anything you need to coat around your home. Its water based so it produces less fumes and cleans up easily with warm water. Its also a great polyurethane because its available in gloss, semi-gloss and satin sheens. These options mean that you more than likely will have the right sheen to work with any wood in your home. Its also more valuable than other polyurethanes because it can be applied over both oil and water based stains once the stain is dry, which means you dont have to worry about messing up any stain. Additionally, it has a recoat time of only 2 hours, which is fairly quick. That saves you time because you dont have to wait as long to put on follow up coats.
