How is water based different from oil based? Thx
Excellent question! This will explain in further detail.
In my opinion, water-based poly is for furniture that gets light use. Here's a link that tells you why:
Water based poly dries fast. About an hour between coats. Does not yellow over time. No odor to contend with. Oil based has a yellow cast to it and does yellow over time. Takes a long time to dry. About three to six hours between coats.
