i’m looking for low VOC finishes that have little or no fumes, i’m thinking of putting a woodshop in the attached garage, so fumes need to be at a minimum, i just came across the following and was wondering if anyone has tried it:

Any of the water borne finishes provide the same.

Shellac is another “green” option. The wafting odor of grain alcohol might smell like someone is mixing punch for a frat party, but it doesn’t linger and isn’t terribly offensive.

Have your say...
