I’m a fan of Waterlox. In fact I just drove more than an hour just to buy it. Maybe you’re wondering why I drove that long just to buy the darn thing. If you’re guessing, yes I live in Southern California and Waterlox was banned here because of the VOC. So I had to drive to another County just to buy it. And when I got there, I bought 5 Quarts (3-original, 1-high gloss, 1-marine) cost me almost $170 at Woodcraft.
Rick is right. Waterlox is just a tung oil base and not pure TO. I choose TO because of the easy repairability of the finish. I’m a novice woodworker so if there’s any other finish that you can suggest that easy to repair please share. Thanks.
