On several finishing forums I have never seen the subject of brushing this product. They always call it a wiping varnish. The Waterlox site does discuss brushing it.
It would seem that if the manufacturer has instructions on how to apply it this way it should be a viable application method. They did, however, say the last application should be wiped on.
The next question is, what would be a good brand name natural bristle brush to use?
I will be applying this to bare cherry.
Thank you.

I apply it with a foam brush, in thin layers. Works great. I never have actually wiped it on, but just used the foam brush.

On the advice of a pro woodworker, my first coat is with Watco Danish Oil, sort of using it as a seal coat. Be sure to let the Danish Oil dry completely. First coat of Waterlox looks awful. Second coat looks better. Third coat looks great, and I usually apply a fourth coat. I use the Sarin.

Have your say...
