We enjoyed working with the Aqua Coat grain filler as it is easy to use and tints very well. It also gave our ashtray the smooth glassy look we were looking for.” (Grain Filler)

"I used Aqua Coat and I’m very happy with the results I got. I was very intimidated to get started because I was worried the product was going to be hard to work with, but it really was very easy. I’m so happy I found this product!! (White Grain Filler)


"Great product and easy to use and resulted in a finish that completely hides the fact that it's made out of wood. It's a humidor with a hidden drawer. Your product really made it look great." (Topcoat)


"These are some of the things I have created with the help of your products. The end product is only as good as the finish that is placed. The Aqua Coat products are easy to apply and easy to create the final finish that the customer or creator wishes." (Topcoat)


"I absolutely love your products. The top is done with a single coat of your Aqua Tone water-based stain, followed by 2-3 coats of your water-based clear satin top coat, sprayed. I've been using this approach for years, and never a customer complaint." (Aqua Tone Stain, Lacquer)


"Loving the Aqua Coat product, nothing even comes close!"  (White Grain Filler)

"We bought this 20-year old rustic oak dining table with 6 ladder back chairs. Prep was a HUGE job with turned legs on the table supports and on the legs of each chair. After staining I used the Aqua Coat Clear Grain Filler and finished the set with the Aqua Coat Tabletop Commercial Finish. This turned out pretty nicely I think." (Clear Grain Filler and Tabletop Commericial Finish)


"Long days were spent prepping the cabinets for the final coat of paint! But man was it all worth it! The Aqua Coat really made a difference!" (Aqua Coat White Grain Filler)


"I completed a project on a piece of mesquite using Aqua Coat Sanding Sealer, Clear Grain Filler, and Aqua Coat Satin Lacquer. Great products! An additional project I completed for a friend I used Aqua Coat Satin Lacquer; a coffee table based on a pioneer buckboard wagon seat. Great product!" (X119, Clear Grain Filler, Lacquer)



“My kitchen cabinets are in great shape, but the honey oak wasn’t working for me. Instead of paying thousands of dollars for a company to paint them for me, I decided to DIY. Aside from a new cabinet color, a smooth finish was also important to me for this upgrade. I used Aqua Coat White Cabinet Grain Filler. It was really easy to use and gave my cabinets new life! I bought the 1-quart size and even after 27 doors and 8 drawers, each with two coats, I still have some leftover. Products like this are what gives us DIYers the confidence to tackle big projects and feel proud of our work!” (White Grain Filler)


"I used Aqua Coat grain filler and topcoat with retarder to allow flow out. A great water-based product. My guitar finish is very tough. Love the product! Not going back to oil, ever. The Cross-Linker adds the toughness required for long-term beauty. Thank you Aqua Coat." (Clear Grain Filler, Cross-Linker, Aqua Thane)


“We found that we didn't like how the grain was showing through the paint, so our older cabinets needed a little more prep work in order to get the look we were after.  We found Aqua Coat White Cabinet Grain Filler is really easy to apply and it fills the grain nicely without a ton of sanding required.” (White Grain Filler)


“I applied my first coat of the pore grain filler, after 30 minutes it was dry.  I then applied my third coat.  The wood finish was like glass.  I tried using just lacquer on a scrap piece and it took eight coats just to fill the grain.  There is no way I was going to do that on 10 pieces of wood, it would cost me too much money and way too much time.  I am a firm believer in Aqua Coat Clear Grain Filler.  I will use this product anytime I am working with wood to fill the grain, my project is coming out beautiful.  Thank you Aqua Coat for a fantastic product that is saving me nothing but time and money.” (Clear Grain Filler)



“Awesome product! I use it to fill pores in the guitars I have built. I also used it on an oak cabinet I was painting and it turned out awesome. Highly recommend.” (Clear Grain Filler)


"I was in the middle of refinishing my cabinets, after spraying two coats of primer, I was not happy with how much grain was still showing through. Aqua Coat customer service assured me the white grain filler would do the trick and it really did. I applied the grain filler and another coat of primer before applying two coats of paint. The cabinets came out great. I am very pleased with your product and your customer service." (White Grain Filler)


"Thank you for making an amazing product that was super easy to work with. I wouldn’t have been able to do what I wanted without you!  Aqua coat not only made the surface glassy smooth, along with the dye it really made the open grain structure of the elm stand out!" (Clear Grain Filler)


“Knotty Moon Design specializes in most anything wood...from custom kitchens to unique craft items. Furniture is a passion. Everything we build requires only the best materials....from the raw wood to the best hardware to the best finishing products. In the 18 years we have been taking perfectly good boards and turning them into sawdust, we have used at least a half dozen clear water-based clear finishes. Aqua Coat has the requirements that we look for in a top end semigloss clear finish...low odor, good shooting characteristics, good build, quick dry time, application in a wide temperature range, durable hardness, and easy "smoothability. We use a top-line spray gun so why not use a top-line clear coat?" (Clear Lacquer)

“Have been using your stains and waterborne for probably near 20 years.  A superior product for sure.  Also, use them on dozens of refinished kitchens every year.”(White Grain Filler)


“Been using Aqua Coat for years.  Easy to spray, clean up, great durability.” (Clear Lacquer, Aqua Thane)


“I just want to tell you how pleased I am to have found out about your product.  My husband and I are painting 30-year-old oak cabinets.  I tried filling the grain with some other products, without much luck.  Aqua Coat white grain filler was a life saver for me.  It’s amazing stuff and as you can see it gives your cabinets a completely smooth finish.  I tell anyone starting a project as big as ours, save yourself the trouble and use Aqua Coat white grain filler to smooth out your oak cabinets.  You’ll love the results.  I love that it’s easy to use, it cleans up with water and hardly has any odor.  I thought you’d like to know that you have a very satisfied customer in me.” (White Grain Filler)


“I used 3 thin coats of Aqua Coat grain filler on the tabletop so it was extra smooth.  I love this product for pieces that have an open grain and I want a smooth, sleek surface to paint.” (Clear Grain Filler)

“As a conservator/restorer of fine furniture, I was looking for a water-based system to replicate the look and clarity of a shellac finish.  I have used the X-119 product in the past, but was pleasantly surprised with the outcome and clarity of the Aqua Seal sealer, and the lacquer provided a beautiful topcoat with exceptional depth, and color over my dye/gel stain base.  No toxic solvents to mess with, no reaction to the high humidity of western Florida, and to the untrained and trained eye, a shellac look alike finish that brings out the grain and beauty of this 160+ year old chair. Thanks for the great products.“ (Aqua Seal Sanding Sealer, Clear Lacquer)


“I wanted to thank you for creating Aqua Coat white cabinet filler.  I didn’t want to spend $15,000 on new kitchen and bathroom cabinets and decided to use your product.  We are so happy with the results.  Thank you again for giving us an affordable option when updating our kitchen and bathroom.  Thank you for creating Aqua Coat!!” (White Grain Filler)


“Over the years I’ve struggled finding a water base finish that has the same clarity and look as a lacquer.  So far this is the closest I’ve ever sprayed.  A lot of refinishing jobs I am only restoring the tops of a table or dresser.  Although I can get the color and sheen water based still looks different.  Another product from Aqua Coat I love!!” (Clear Lacquer)

“This is the first time we tried it, and we are really impressed!  So was the customer.” (White Grain Filler)

“The Aqua Coat was the perfect product to fill all the grain and holes without losing the pine look.  Without the Aqua Coat to fill the grain and seal the wood the transfer would not work at all.” (Clear Grain Filler)


“Just finished my first set of cornhole boards using Aqua Coat Top Coat Semigloss.  Very smooth and bubble-free finish.  Used a foam pad floor applicator.  Just a really great result.” (Topcoat)


“I have been using your product exclusively as my finish of choice on my custom guitars.” (Clear Grain Filler, Topcoat)


“It turned out beautiful and is still holding up after 1 ½ years.  Nice product."

“Amazing finish and easy application.”


“Our first time using Aqua Coat grain filler on our deep pores of this birch that we stain matched and clear coated to replace a water damage cabinet end and kicker.  Awesome stuff.” (White Grain Filler)

“This product is fantastic!  We have red cabinets that I wanted to paint off white.  We wanted to kill the grain so I practiced on our laundry room.  They are beautiful!  I just ordered enough to hopefully finish my kitchen.” (White Grain Filler)
