Default Wipe On Poly

Has anyone used the Minwax Wipe On Poly? I've used it on a couple of pieces of furniture I've built and loved it. It's easy to use on pieces with lots of moulding and details. And the look it great-- a hand rubbed type finish.

The pieces I've used it on-- a bed frame and a curio cabinet-- don't get much wear and tear. I'm curious how it would hold up on cabinets or some other surface that gets more use.

I used it on oak trim I stained and also liked the look. That was two years ago and I have had a window leak, a countless rotation of plants and seasonal decorations and a ton of sunlight. I don't notice any yellowing.

I tried it out recently on a spanish cedar bench that was built by a carpenter we work with as a charity piece for the local pre-school's annual auction. It worked really well.

I like the way it self levels on a horizontal surface. I did my Mom's oak kitchen table 5 years ago still looks good. One of min wax's best products, I don't use the regular poly. I even used it on a floor that I new would get light use ( no shoes allowed in this guys house) because of the no brushmark look the guy wanted. It is not really a floor varnish however.Mopaint

I'll have to try it out sometime. I've stayed away from it to this point because it says "minwax" on the can, I just assumed it was junk.
