I am finishing a piece of furniture for my home and would like to use a no (or low) VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) product. However, there does not seem to be many on the market. I found one so far:


Have you found a No/Low VOC that works well? What tips do you have?

There are a number of low VOC finishes on the market.Two are Safecoat Polyureseal BP and Minwax Polycrylic.

They have one problem. If you have a dark finish, they tend to collect in corners and appear white against the dark stain when they dry.
