Osmo Polyx-Oil – Simple and Durable

My shop is dusty, and I certainly don’t have room for a dedicated spray finishing room, but I still need to apply a finish to my projects. I picked up some of Osmo’s Polyx-Oil a few months ago and prepped up a few test panels to see how it worked. I’m glad I did, as the resulting finish stood up to wear and stains quite well, had a nice colour and sheen to it and, best of all, it was very easy to apply. I wiped on a few coats with a rag before final assembly of a recent table, and had absolutely no problems with runs, sags or overspray. I also learned that if a scratch or some wear occurs down the road it’s best to wipe some more of the finish on the area and let dry. I love it when things are simple.
