Yes, you may consider just going with a top coat. You re options are basically varnishes and polyurethane.

I recently build a dining table and used EmTech 8000 conversion varnish. Very happy with it.

If you don t have the capability to spray, I would avoid this material it really has to be sprayed.

Good to avoid stains maple is very subject to blotching.

I’ve heard good things about Target Coatings and looked at this type quickly online. Can I ask a few questions??I’m new to spraying but have a Fuji turbine system on the way.

Is this finish tricky, or doable for someone new to spraying?

It looks like its low VOC. I’ll have to spray in my basement and will wear a respirator. Are there any issues with fumes or smells that should be considered?
