Has anyone used this product? I am really bad at applying varnish/poly with a paintbrush...I leave lots of streaks! I am thinking of trying wipe on poly but would appreciate other application suggestions.

Yes, wipe on poly is easy to use and produces excellent results. You can make your own by buying any varnish (uncut) and cutting yourself 50/50 mineral spirits to varnish

It is easy to use and user friendly,I have tried it 2 times to see what it is about.I am a paint contractor.

I had to put 4-5 coats on just to match what I get from the brush in 2 coats.

get yourself a good quality brush such as purdy or wooster make sure it is black bristle apply your varnish,don't be afraid to use the varnish put it on who cares how globbed it is,if your not able to use brushes well.

Then after you apply it to a 3-4 foot section then make 1 long light brushstroke,then just watch for any runs or puddles that maybe forming,I tell people to use a small dry foam brush to clean up puddling,just kind of dab the spot.

After a clear varnish drys it is so hard to see brush strokes.
