Varnish is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for outdoor furniture I used this product to seal an outdoor wooden glider last summer. About 6 months after application of two coats, I noticed the product started peeling, and the brown stain I had applied under it began fading in patches. It has progressively gotten worse. I contacted Minwax and got the following reply, which I wish I had known prior to purchase. This information was not specified on the pint sized container that I purchased. "With three coats of Helmsman on a exterior surface, the life span is 9-18 months. Two coats would much less. It would be best to apply three coats. Once a year, it would need to be recoated, at the first sign of wear. If it is let go, it will start to peel off"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Durable Finish Like anything, this finish requires good preparation of the surface. But, if you do, you will be rewarded with a very good looking, glass smooth and durable finish. I just used a throwaway foam brush. I made a motorized standup desk using red oak. The finish came out so smooth after waxing that when I put my laptop on it the first time, it almost slid off like ice. Placing a sweaty glass on it, the water just beaded up. Out of curiosity, I left the water on the top for several minutes and it wiped right off leaving no marks at all. Having the laptop slide over the top and moving monitors around have left no scratches or anything on the surface. I am very impressed with this finish and would highly recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked magic on my counters! Did a granite faux finish on top of vinyl counters and needed a sealant to finish it, seal/waterproof it and give it the "granite shine." Teresa at Weaverville Lowes knew just which product would do the job! Her knowledge about what products would perform well under "kitchen counter" conditions was astounding! She not only knew exactly which product to use, but HOW to use it, apply it, and let it cure. My kitchen counters look amazing...just like real granite! Minwax Helmsman Spar is pure magic!!!! Thanks Minwax. Thanks Teresa. Thanks Lowes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great touch-up A neighbor power-washed her exterior wooden door and damaged the existing varnish finish: there were gray areas where the previous finish appeared to be washed away or very thin. After the door dried, she cleaned the surface with a vinegar / water mixture. I varnished the lower half (the damaged portion) with Minwax Helmsman Gloss Oil-based Polyurethane. The result was excellent. We couldn't detect where the new varnish crossed-over onto the old varnish. Fantastic. Later, I applied a coat of Helmsman to the entire exterior surface of the door. Great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bar top I was worried about the yellowing effect of polyurethane.This product is truly clear and brought out the natural beauty of the cedar. The problem I had is there was no picture of a before and after. For anyone looking to retain the natural color and enhance , this is the product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great finish I use this clear on all my woods, stain or natural, gives it a hint of orange so if you looking for Raw wood finish it’s no for you. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I used this product on a new picnic table that I built and followed the recommended application process. After adding three coats the table looked beautiful! Unfortunately it did not hold up and I am very disappointed. Within a few months it looks like the finish has worn off and the table is discoloring in many spots. It will need to be resanded and refinished, but not with this product. Hopefully I find a better one!
