We always put 3 coats of polyurethane to eliminate wood grain that may show through finish. We like to make our floors functional, as well as a work of art.

    Beautiful work. Most clients don't realize that it's not just the number of coats but the quality of the poly that counts. For some reason, that 3rd coat of good poly gives the floor an almost exponential wear layer. I've never been able to explain that but always recommend 3 coats of poly for floors.

    Ringelberg, I couldn't agree with you more. When I am asked to paint a design on a floor, I need to make sure that it is "sandwiched" by the layers of poly. If the design is created by different color of stains, I start with the raw wood. Getting the right number of poly coats afterwards is soooo important.
