Okay, so when you’re starting out as a maker, Watco Clear Spray Lacquer is literally the easiest finish to use. Why? because it dries in about 10 minutes. You can get multiple coats done inside of an hour.
That being said, this is not a finish to use for exterior or high wear situations. But for the typical maker, making boxes, or other small projects – this finish is perfect.
Caveat for noobs: this isn’t a food safe finish, so don’t use it on cutting boards
