Trying to poly a wood basket I bought to use for a plant outdoors. Didn't know what wood it was so decided to stain and poly with Minwax Helmsman spar Urethane (indoor/outdoor). I was advised to use this by a worker in Home Depot.
I stained and proceeded to brush a coat of poly. The poly is so thin, like water it drips and no matter how I tried to keep the basket level, it dried with drip stains. I sanded it and put a second coat on one section and I can see drips again.
Is there a trick to doing this? The poly is thin and takes a few hours to dry.
