What to use to spray a polyurethane coating ?
I'm building an outside bar. I used a famowood glaze coat but it's not meant for outside and not very scratch resisitent-says to use famowood dura-tuff polyurethane coating. It recommends using a natural bristle brush or to spray on. I want to keep the glass like finish from the glazecoat so I don't really want to brush it on. What would be the best sprayer/method for applying this type of sealer? I haven't heard many good things about the wagner power sprayers. It's gonna be a one-time thing so cheap is best. Would a small, cheap, plastic 3 pint garden pump sprayer like this one work? http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10051&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&productId=100164531&N=10000003+90164&marketID=164&locStoreNum=4907 I've also seen some metal type sprayers that you pressurize with compressed air. I know they work great for stuff like WD40 but don't know how they would work with a polyurethane type sealer. Anyone have any ideas?

I actually am doing the very same thing right now, andI have put about 5 gallons if glazecoat on top of my bar (sealing bottlecaps in). As you said, the finish is like glass. I bought the Dura-Tuff poly coating and tried to brush it on, but in my opinion, it really added alot of tiny bubbles, and really took away... More
