Sure, just let the Danish fully cure first. I have even used JPW over straight BLO. Just give it some.

I have done it and it came out good, I have let the Danish oil or BLO dry a good 3 – 5 days before applying.

I would say a week to be safe. Local humidity can be a factor, so I would just wait it out, IMO (learned the hard way with multiple shellac coatings and high humidity). Time is your friend.

Thanks Mike… We’ll let it sit a week and then have at it.

Randy,

you’re “insightful” as always :^)

Is the Minwax finishing wax just as good as JPW?

Have not used the MinWax “wax”, only their stains and Tung Oil Finish/wiping-varnish. To tell you the truth, I was skeptical at first on using JPW. I has been recommended for our cast iron tool surfaces and such. However, after using it on my TS, BS, and Jointer, besides my workbench, I am sold on how good it works. And it is cheap to boot! Unlike our experiences with car waxes/polishes (that should never be used on wood) that dry rapidly and can be buffed in a couple of minutes, JPW takes longer to dry before buffing.

I will apply JPW, wait 10-15min and buff, and THEN buff a second time the next day and it really hardens and shines at that time. The first time on metal is the hardest, but not so bad on wood furniture. Later coats are a breeze.

”...What’s the point? It adds nothing….”

JPW provides a great removable glue barrier on a workbench and other furniture that might be exposed to such sticky stuff. On cast iron, as we all know, it provides a moisture barrier to guard against rusting duw to high humidity. Though it is not perfect. A drop of sweat will dissolve and eat though JPW on cast iron in seconds. I have to be on constant guard in the summer months when using affected equipment.
