How to Apply a Waterlox Finish
Dale Nish Finishing Process
Comments On Jul 25, 2015:A reliable wipe-on finish which can be manipulated to give a satin sheen to a high gloss if desired.
Like most penetrating oil blend finishes, it brings out the grain beautifully and doesn't add much color. I will noticeably add some yellow to pale woods like maple though.
When fully cured (a few days is best for this) it will take buffing with tripoli well if a really high gloss is desired.
Unless you're a high-volume user, you absolutely will need to buy some Bloxygen to prevent the unused finish from gelling in the can. Even with that precaution however, once the container is opened the shelf life is dramatically shortened, especially in warm weather. This inherent potential for wastefulness is really the only reason I didn't rate this finish with 5 stars instead of 4.
