I,m close to finishing this toybox for my 6 month old boy. I still need to plane down some rough walnut for the the lid.I am fairly new at this, so if anyone can help me …. It has 3 coats of Minwax Antique oil finish on it so far and I wanted to make sure that a Minwax wipe on polyurathane was ok for a top coat.

Looks great. I’m no expert either, but I think you can safely apply poly over oil as long as you make sure you give the oil plenty of time to fully cure.

I’m prety certain that pete is right. If your uncertain why not try it on some scrap I don’t think your son will notice the time differance, and please show us the final result and the results of your finish

I use the Minwax wipeon for everything – fantastic product. I’ve even tried it over waxed shellac and had no issues…

Scuff up the finish with steel wool and wipe away. No problem—there are no reactivity issues.
