Does anyone make a oil-based polyurethane in matte finish?

I am doing a project with a stain finish and it is too shiny. Does anyone make a oil-based polyurethane in matte finish? I need about a half pint to complete.

40 or so yrs ago I ordered matte poly. I think I ordered it from PPG. I have no idea if it's still available. SWP sells a gloss modifier that will tone down the sheen of any oil base coating it's added to but I doubt that would be cost effective.

What are you applying the poly to? Drying spraying will dull the sheen although the finish won't be as smooth.

The project is a mantel over the fireplace. I can live with it as-is, but I think it would look better with less sheen.

It's possible sanding it down with 320 grit might lessen the sheen some without looking sanded.

Minwax makes a polyurethane in a satin. Not sure I have seen a flat. If it is glossy now you will have to sand before you apply. You would be happy with the satin. If you have a local hardware that sells minwax products they will have it. I get it at Menards. Not sure if Home Depot or Lowes has it or not. Hope that helps

Second the satin. It sounds like thatís the look you want. Have you considered an alkyd satin varnish? Available at any marine supply store like West Marine. Iím an amateur boatbuilder, and thatís what I use on areaís that I donít want too glossy.
