Building some bathroom vanity out of oak ply/wood. Likely stain it dark. Thinking waterlox marine in a high moisture environment?
Figure if it’s good enough for boats it ought to handle bathroom humidity well..

Its good stuff, and overkill for your application. A boat endures saltwater, long periods of sun and other weather exposure etc…

I wonder if over-finishing is equivalent to over-engineering. I over-engineer everything.

I’d use it.

Don’t use marine varnish in doors. Marine is made for outside…...not inside…’s a softer finish and less water resistance.

Regular waterlox would be fine. Remember though waterlox has a dark amber hue so test it first.
