Hey folks, it’s me again… I’m almost ready for the finish to be applied to the blanket chest I’ve been working so hard on. I want to use a wipe on product because I’m afraid of trying to brush on a finish on a chest with lots of vertical surfaces. I thought a hand applied wipe on finish will be better for a relatively new guy like me.
I was at Woodcraft yesterday and bought a can of Watco wipe on poly. I’ve used Watco brush on lacquer before and was please with the results, so I was hoping that their wipe on poly will be a decent product as well.
I realize that everyone will have an opinion on something, so if you’ve used either Watco or Minwax wipe on poly before, can you let me know what your experiences have been? If you’ve use both, which did you prefer and why?
The body of y chest is walnut with a cedar lining and floor. Besides a wipe on poly, if you have other suggestions as to what you’d use to finish the chest, I’m open to hear what you have to say. I’m mostly looking for ease of application since I’ve got a lot of time (and money) invested in the chest, I don’t want to ruin it with a poor finish.
Thanks everyone for your help.
