Perfect example of our favorite Behr paint.

Also to add to the discussion about oil or latex.Latex will not yellow with age.

I was tempted to take a pic of the Temp door I just painted with Behr (sagged)
But it was easier to do a quick Internet search for "Behr paint sagging"

I'm making bottoms for very nice pre-finished cabinets. This is a natural maple finish so I just need to seal not paint but I'm pretty much going to be unhappy if I can't get a finish at least close to factory one.

To add to the delimma, I'm extremely particular about the products I use and their off-gasing properties. This pretty much elimiates use of all the products discussed in this thread (no oil based for example) and I am using a water-based product called Polyureseal BP from AFM (http://www.afmsafecoat.com/products.php?page=3). Furthermore, the manufacturer recommends to not use any sort of thinner "for best results".

I actually started brushing (with a very high quality nylon brush) but do see slight brush strokes on the initial coats. Showing this to various people, here are some of the comments I've gotten back and was hoping I could get some feedback here.

* Put the product on thicker and maybe it'll then even itself out. [I actually don't believe this will work]

* The initial coats are clear, when you put your finishing Satin coat on, the less shinner finish willl probably hide these lines

* You can sand the brush lines off

* Spraying will give you the best finish [maybe in the hands of a expert???]

* The manufacturer recommended applying the product with the wood being damp or slightly wet. I'm trying that now.

Being cabinet bottoms, these are just flat pieces and not overly complex. At this point, I've stopped working with the real pieces and I'm playing around with different techniques on a spare piece until I can get this figured out. Any suggests will be highly welcomed! Thanks!!
