I making and end table and wonder if a Minwax Tung Oil Finish of 3 to 5
coats will give me a waterproof finish that will also be hard enough to
protect the top from minor dings?
If this will not get the desired finish, what do y'all recommend besides
Nothing will protect from all dings. Google "epoxy finishes" and take a
look at the various offerings. This stuff is used for bar tops, floors,
boats, etc. so it probably next best to armor plating.
There are a myriad of finishes that will offer good abrasion and water
protection for your project, but you'll be hard pressed to find one to
prevent physical damage such as dings.
The Minwax tung oil finish will not provide a waterproof finish - Although
it should offer good resistance to water damage, provided you clean the
spill when it happens. Although I would recommend that you double the
amount of coats of finish on the top of the table. Wipe on finishes have
little to no build, and table tops need a little extra help.
