when to use armorall?

I'm going to try the armorall trick on my current project, using armorall wipes for UV protection. But when do I apply it? Should I use it on the bare wood, or over the topcoat? I'm using Formby's Tung Oil mix. If I use it on the bare wood, will it keep the oil from penetrating? If I use it on top, how often should it be reapplied?
thanks david

Mike,
I've been a little busier than usual, plus I haven't had any burning issues to discuss. I try to check the Wreck a few times a day but lately I've gone a day or two without getting to the computer. What are you building now? Today I botched up a cabinet for under the Unisaw and had to recut a few pieces. My enthusiasm for going into the shop is inversely proportional to the heat we've been having in San Jose (not SF <g>). When the heat relents a bit I'll be texturing the living room walls, which is the room I just refinished the oak floor in.

Hey Dave,
The baby is only 2 weeks away (projected due date, anyway) and I'm STILL not done with the woodworking. I have yet to stain the crib, but I should easily do that in the next 2 to 3 days. The big thing is getting the changing table/dresser finished. I'm only at the panel glue-up stage, but I have 5 weeks now without any MBA classes to worry about, so every night it is going to be 4+ hours after work in the shop. Hopefully I can get it done by mid next week, but I'm learning to not be too optimistic about timelines with my woodworking projects.
I bought one of the Stots dovetail master things (couldn't really afford the Leigh jig or anything more expensive than that right now) so I'm going to see how that goes tonight building a couple of jigs. The case for the changing table is a box 27" high by 22" deep by 48" wide, so I didn't want to really on rabbets or other joinery that might fail, and I had no way of dovetailing boards 22" wide. I've read about 6 reviews and descriptions of the thing and it seems pretty straightforward.
So, that's what I'm up to. Still can't believe I'm going to have a son in a few weeks!!

Mike,
Congrats on your son about to make his entry into your world! When I found out my wife was pregant with our only child, I was ambivalent, at best. But as her pregnancy continued, I got more and more excited. We didn't know the sex of the fetus, so I painted the nursery yellow. Before our boy was born we would go into the nursery and I would rock the infant carrier, pretending our baby was there.. I was with my wife for the delivery and even got a couple of pictures of him, seconds after his birth. That was back in '78. Now he is 25 and his mom and I have been divorced for 7 years. Life goes on. I remarried 1 year ago to a gal WAY more suited to me.
Back to WW: how much is a Stots?

I got it directly from Stottman (www.stots.com) with the router bits and he gives a cd-rom with a how-to video, which was pretty good, I will say. I think it was $87 all together with shipping. If you happen to have the bits, you can get the template for only $40, IIRC.
I have all the makings for the jig I need, so I'll be doing that tonight after gluing up a few more panels. It looks to be a pretty straightforward process and if you need an odd-sized jig or something it is pretty useful.
I will still probably save up and get a Leigh or maybe an Akeda if they increase the width of stock it will accept, but for now this should work just great.
The Stots only does through dovetails or box joints, too, FYI.
