The Way to Fix Furniture With Uneven Polyurethane Coating

Oil- and – water-based polyurethane finishes provide a tough, clear coating to protect hardwood floors, walls and furniture. This product is somewhat lean as a liquid, which makes it rather easy to use over wood surfaces. The lean consistency also makes it easy for employed excesses to dry and run unevenly. Manufacturers advocate applying polyurethane in two or more coats, therefore it’s possible to fix an uneven polyurethane finish on furniture without even bothering the blot coating or wood surface beneath.

Permit furniture with a fresh polyurethane coating to dry completely. Polyurethane finishes need about 24 hours’ healing time prior to trimming.

Cut off dried polyurethane drips using a sharp utility knife. Cut off the excess coating without gouging the end below the smooth surface.

Sand a rotary tool excess foam, for example as rough lumps, using a handheld rotary tool fitted with a 120-grit sanding disk to score on hard-to-reach areas on the furniture. Apply the disk quickly and gently, so as to avoid sanding throughout the foam coat. Wipe the surface with a moist cloth and a dry cloth to remove all sanding dust.

Put the furniture in a well-ventilated work place. Brush on foam using a paintbrush in the direction of the wood grain. Brush a thin, even layer over the sanded area and allow it to dry to your touch for about 12 hours prior to analyzing the end for evenness. Lightly sand the area by hand and keep applying polyurethane in thin coatings until the end is even.
