I was wondering if there were any opinions about this stuff:
A clear, oil-based, durable protective finish that is specially
formulated to provide long-lasting beauty and protection with just two
I have never used it, but for no reason that I can explain, I tend to
believe that it's targeted towards someone who is refinishing a floor,
and therefore would not tend to buy it for my other needs. Just
wondering if anyone here has any experience with it or can say that
they would use it on furniture, etc.
Yes I have used this. I like it mostly for making my own wipe on poly.
I mix it about 3 parts mineral spirits to one part poly. This stuff is
The one time I sprayed with it I turned a beautiful set of Cherry
coffee table and two end tables into what felt (to me) like a big hunk
of plastic. I had some trouble getting it to flatten on the table tops
so I ended up wet sanding with mineral spirits building up a slurry of
poly and solvent. I recoated it and had to do it again. It was so
thick and flat it was just like plastic when I was done.
I actually offered to rebuild the whole set for my customer but they
assured me they really liked it and paid in full.
I should have followed my own rule of never "trying" a finish on a
finished piece. If I can't get a flat test board to finish like I want
it then what hope of a whole piece of furniture. I actally often make
up dummy frame and panels if the piece has the same so I can test the
various stain build colors and techniques to use in the moldings,
