Watco says give it 72 hours, as a rule that’s not long enough. Above comment is about right. If you can still wipe off color, it’s not dry, and even if you don’t get color it might not be dry enough. Last month used Watco, waited 5 days, top coated and had a top coat of oil based poly that was still tacky more than a week latter. Never had the problem in the past, and I’ve used Watco with a oil based poly as a top coat for years. However here the Upstate of SC we have had rain almost every day for about two months.
That top has interesting grain, never used any mango, what’s it like to work with ?
