I am just starting to finish a large TV cabinet i built for a cousin. I just applied the stain this evening (minwax golden oak). What do you guys recommend I use for my subsequent coats? I have used the minwax polycrylic over the stain in the recent past but haven't been completely happy. Should i try an oil based finish instead? I would prefer to hand apply the finish to this project and not have to setup my sprayer for a lacquer. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
