Great clear coat for small projects and also great for touch up work on previous Lacquer clear coats!
Great product for small projects! I have access to HVLP spray gun with semi gloss Lacquer at work, but the spray can version saved me so much time and no cleanup needed. Don’t forget to clean tip by spraying upside down!
I used this clear coat on some Walnut laminate plywood from Rockler. I had the wood cut at HomeDepot

Preferred by the fellow who refinished this marble table base. For one it would dry more quickly than other products.

Making old wood look new
I was restoring an old trunk and was not sure how to refinish the wood slates without damaging them. A friend told me about Deft Wood finish. I used the semi-gloss and the project came out beautiful. Thanks for such a great product!

Great Finish!
I have used it on most of my furniture projects over 25 years. Easy to use, wears well and keeps a wonderful finish. My only problem is that it is becoming somewhat difficult to find. Thank heaven for Rockler - they stock it and it ships in just days.

Can this product be used over interior paint?

BEST ANSWER: SEVERAL FLASH COATS WILL HELP TO STOP ORANGE PEEL
what should the temperature be to use?
Jacqueline T on Dec 30, 2016
I want to use this on an underbed draws unfinished pine wood this be good????
debra p on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Do not use over another finish like lacquer - it may be incompatible and blister or peel. I have had luck putting it over sanding sealer or putting sanding sealer over Deft semi-gloss. The finish is about the same so I often mix the spray Deft Semi-gloss on certain surfaces and the sanding sealer on larger surfaces that the spray may dry unevenly. Use a back and forth motion with the can of Deft spray and overlap the first pass with each subsequent pass.
can recoat be done without sanding?
Maggie C on Aug 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I apply 2-3 coats sometimes without sanding. However depending on type of wood I’m using I sometimes give my project a light buff with 00 steel
wool at the end
How long does it take for the odor to go away? I have our finished Christmas gifts in our family room where in room temperature and there is still a little lingering odor when you are very close. Most is gone, however I am concerned since it is a wooden tray for small dishes of food. It has been just over two weeks.
Hobby on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is the only product I will buy but sometimes it is hard to find. Rockier doesn't always carry it. I have purchased it at Ace Hardware.
I have part of a can left. From a previous project. How long does it stay good in the can?
sirjim on Nov 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have kept it and used it intermittently over a year, with no problems. I use this on art projects (to finish boxes decorated with hand paintings), which are small and do not require much product each time. That said, I am careful to clean the nozzle after each use and store it in the house so it is not exposed to extreme or very varying temperatures. There is no expiration date marked on the can.
I finished a wood top for a buffet with this now I'm wondering how long I need to wait before bringing it inside?
Lindsay G on Nov 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If your question is about solvent smell, let your nose be your guide. If you finished it in a cooler location, it will take more time to completely lose the residual solvent smell. Putting it in a warmer environment will speed up this process.
I applied a wipe on polyurethan/oil finish, and do not like the results. Can I use this spray over that finish, or do I need to start over?
doreen u on Sep 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. Deft is a lacquer and will most likely lift and wrinkle the poly.
Wipe some coats of the Poly on a scrape board. After it has dried try spraying the Deft and see what happens.
Can this product be used over interior paint?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use it to seal a water or other stain in paint. After it dries, which is quick, it can then be painted over. Seals stains in paint better than Kilz.
I used Deft clear wood gloss laquer to refinish a ukulele. How long should I wait before polishing the finish with a buffing wheel an rouge?
A shopper on Aug 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: From my experience, the longer the better but for the short answer I would wait at least a week.
Be sure you have enough of a "build-up" of coats, it's quite easy to burn through the finish with the buffing wheel, especially around the edges.
What is the coldest temperature for applying this product?
