Wood Island Top Finish...Choices
Here are the wood island finish choices:
1. Tung Oil or Linseed Oil
3. The "mystery" finish the maker recommends OVER Waterlox!
We are going to use Mahogany for the wood island top, but I think it will be too "red", therefore plan to stain it. My understanding is, if we stain it, then tung oil/linseed oil really isn't a good choice.
I have always read RAVE reviews on Waterlox here on GW, and just assumed that is what we should ask for, but he said he really prefers whatever product he uses (didn't say the name, just that it's a mix, and not available to DIYers, or at Home Depot/Lowes, etc. )
So, what should we do? Trust his judgment that what he uses is better than Waterlox? Or still request Waterlox?
Thanks for the input!
