My dad used Tried and True on a bed about 8 years ago and it could not look better. He used the oil and beeswax formula. Yes, people are right that it can take a little while longer to dry, but the durability is tops. I think he did 3 coats. You can’t beat the smell either- it’s not all chemicals, it smells real.

Bill, you really only get about 2 weeks out of a can of Arm-R-Seal? I’ve been working on the same quart for a year now on some small projects. Right before I close the can I exhale (carbon dioxide) into the can with a straw. It makes all the difference.
