Best Finish over Oil Based Stain
I stained my table with Early American by Minwax, both the top and underneath. I used minwax polyurethane in satin as a top coat but only underneath the table so far. I read that you should treat both sides the same to deter moisture issues. It darkened the color and was too shiny for my liking. Is there any type of finish I can use on the top that won't darken it and also not be so shiny? Another question, can Polyacrylic be used instead of polyurethane?
