We used General Finishes Exterior Products to refurbish the horse stalls in our barn - they had been empty and untreated for almost 10 years, and the results were fabulous. See before and after pictures below. After power power-washing and sanding down the previous oil base finish, we sprayed a 50/50 mixture of Olde Cherry Exterior 450 Stain and Coffee Bean Exterior 450 Stain mixed with an equal quantify of Exterior 450 Clear top coat. Next time we might add a little dye stain.
Here is a photo of the floor cloth I painted using acrylic paint for the fish and smaller details, but the checker board and borders were done with GF milk paint (Antique Ivory, Lamp Black and Tuscan Red). The paint performed very well on canvas!

I turned a segmented pen to see how well the finish would fill. It exceeded my expectation. It was so much easier to apply and finish then the CA finish I have been using and the big bonus if I didn't have to deal with the fumes.
Yesterday I turned a pen using tulipwood. The ease in applying the
finish was amazing. Six light coats, no raised grain and the finish was
so good that I didn't even have to buff it.
Attached is a picture of three bowls that I finished with General Finishes "Enduro-Var" water based urethane - semi-gloss. The bowl wood, from bottom to top is: spalted maple, ash, ginko.
