I’m looking for suggestions for a clear semi-gloss finish for maple that won’t yellow. I’ve tried Minwax Polyurethane and Deft Lacquer, both have been deemed too yellow. I’m now considering shellac. I’ve read about “two part” and “water based” finishes. They seem to require more exacting application procedures than I’m used to, and I’m not certain they will produce the desired “clear” finish. The piece is an end table.
