I have used tried and true linseed and beeswax formula on extensively used instruments (musical) and a variety of projects, always with excellent results. (Many other finish types are thought to choke the sound on an instrument.) I have even used it on a heavily used black walnut kitchen countertop, which they do not recommend, but again the results were great and the counter has been used several years now in an extremely busy kitchen and still looks great. If it ever clouds up from moisture (which isnt that often) it just dries itself out and looks none the worse for wear. I have even used it after it was quite old and started to gel, by just breaking through the gel layer to the oil beneath, again no ill effects. I love knowing how safe the product is and the finish is so naturally beautiful.
