I finished my basement in white pine and want to keep a light natural look. Polyurethane yellowed the wood over time on a sample piece. What can I use to avoid this?

Pine yellows on its own naturally over time. Sunlight will accelerate this.

water based polyurethane stays a little whiter and tends not to yellow so much.

Make sure it has UV inhibitors as well. UV is what darkens wood, or in this case yellows it.

I use the water based formulation of a product called "Vlecto Varathane". It is somewhat pricey, but hardly changes the color of wood at all.
