Best Answer

The clearest isn't an oil based polyurethane, it is a water based polyacrylic. These are clearer and typically used on maple or bamboo because they do not amber the face of the wood. Minwax sells one in most home improvement stores. Nothing is completely clear, but you can pick up a small can and try it out on a sample. The disadvantage to these products is they are a lot more expensive and also not nearly as strong.
