our new home will have knotty pine vaulted ceiling, woodwork and interior doors. what's the best way to finish them(no stain) to make them look natural but not plastic. Benjamin Moore Stays Clear has been suggested for the ceiling because was told that will stop the yellowing with age. our finisher will spray the woodwork and the doors and was told Stays Clear can not be sprayed because it is water thin. we like the Stays Clear finish so now what do we use on the woodwork and doors that can be sprayed but will not yellow? HELP

You could use a water reducible urethane and then you will not have to worry about the finish turning yellow.

Speaking of water reducible polyurethane, Stays Clear is just that. It is a high quality Benjamin Moore product and is sprayable with airless equipment, and is water cleanup. Its available in high gloss #422 or low luster #423. I would choose the low luster for a satin finish.

Have your painter talk to the Benjamin Moore Paint dealer for application tips. He may need to reduce airless tip size to a 313 to prevent massive overspray, but it should work.
