    Are you referring to the natural finish? If so, they do have a clear satin finish. Not sure if polyurethane or lacquer but definitely a clear coat of some type.

    Yeah referring to the actual type of coating used.. I have a very sensitive smell and i know polyurethane bothers me a lot!! (its not too bad in large area like living room, but in a smallish room i cant..)

    I don't recall any type of distinct odor from the finish when I first got the Sierra-1's back in 2007, they were dried/cured so there should not be any smell, but it has been more than 7 years since I first unpacked them.

    I've been to the Ascend offices/warehouse/factory and can't recall an odor.

    The Sierra cabinets that are manufactured overseas are coated with a polyester resin. They are odorless. The Sierra cabinets that are manufactured here in the states for us do not use PY or PU.

    Hope this helps!
