and I tricked these guys into letting me be a mod on here.

EZ game.

If the OP isn't familiar with a pour on finish, it would be a bad choice as there are some tips/tricks that make it much easier to get better finished results.

If the OP IS familiar with it, then it's a great finish and probably the most preferred next to another type of epoxy.

Conversion is good, wasn't sure the level of expertise the OP had in different coatings. If it was me I'd do a conversion coating, a waterborne type poly or catalyzed coating to help with chemicals/alcohol, etc. Finally the epoxy route would be the last thing (but probably best durability wise). If left out doors, the epoxy would be a bad choice.

Good luck, post some before/after photos.

Staining maple isn't hard. Condition, sand with a high grit, then stain. If your really worried about it, flood the wood first with appropriate thinner, let the wood dry out a bit then flood it with stain & wipe. Should be just fine, little lighter on the color, but with some sample boards you can adjust the color to the technique.

I have a suspicion YOU got tricked. I could be wrong.

Well i certainly didnt mean to cause any trouble, but in my former life, I was a house painter for about 10 years. I just dont have as much experience with wood finishing, hence my pressing all you pros for info.

So Im gonna go with a water based CV or lacquer, the boss thinks that if I blow the place up insurance will just laugh and point. I really dont have a huge desire to mess with explosion proofing either, though Im still going to turn our dining room into big spray booth and cross vent it with some big window fans.

Im leaning toward Target Coatings Emtech 8000cv with the sealer and crosslinker, Id have to order it but thats ok.
Anyone ever use CIC's Centurion cv?
The Lenmar rep here in MA wants me to use their Duralaq water based lacquer, but it seems like the cv is better, especially with the crosslinker to toughen it even more.

Probably gonna spray it with my 440i, though i may try it through the 3 stage HVLP first just to see how that goes.

Any thoughts?

Merry Christmas!

Well, if by that you mean "simple minded", then YEAH!

I have only used the Emtech Pre-Catylized Water Based Conversion Varnish. I really like it so I imagine their other products should also be great.
