Excellent finishHaving used Danish oil in the past, I wanted something that protected my projects more. I went for Osmo Poly-X after it was recommended, and I've not looked back. For the best results, I have found that you should sand no more than to 240 grit before the first coat, which is then applied perhaps more "generously" than subsequent coats. I initially apply with and against the grain to ensure it gets inbetween the grain, before finishing off with the grain. When totally dry, I lightly rub any nibs down with 400 grit paper, clear away any dust, and then apply two further coats, thinly, with the grain, ensuring I let it dry out completely between coats, and any excess is buffed off after about 15 minutes of application.

Top Quality FinishThis is an excellent product producing a very nice finish which enhances the wood grain - even plywood. Yes, it does seem expensive but it is applied very thinly so it has a huge area of coverage. I have used it to seal and protect a workshop - ceilings, walls, floor, cupboards and a workbench and the end result is very pleasing. It has to be applied very thinly otherwise it will take an.an age to dry - 10/12 hours per coat if applied thinly as it says on the tin. It brushes out easily and does not take the effort that paint or varnish would. It does not drag the surface as overbrushing paint or varnish would and touching up missed areas does not leave any detectable marks. It is quick to apply, has s huge coverage and this makes it value for my money. Advice on a suitable finish for my needs was provided.by Axminster - once again my thanks to them for the sound advice.
