    Can this be used over oil based stains?

    can this product be used over oil based stain

    I don't recommend it bc it's water based poly. It made my beautiful Kona cabinets streaky like I had poured milk on it & let it dry. I called customer service & was told I "over worked" it by going back and forth with my brush more than twice. So I tried it again using just 2 strokes. Cabinet came out less hazy & streaky, but still is terrible looking. Use oil based poly for oil based stains!

    Does it darken then wood color?

    I use this product over paint as a sealer. It may darken the wood slightly if it is unfinished (raw) wood.

    Is the polyurethane matte finish product supposed to appear white?

    Yes. As others have said it goes on white and dries clear. I can send a picture I a finished product if you would like.
