Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good substitute for more expensive waxes I was using this wax to go over chalk paint, to avoid paying for a very expensive can of Annie Sloan furniture wax. I think this product worked well, although it's not totally clear when it dries. Also, I learned that if you are going to buff away excess wax, it's very important to do so about 15 minutes after application. I waited till the next day to buff and it was very, very difficult to remove. When i buffed after just 15 minutes, I was much happier with the finished project. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome I used this to apply a finish top coat over a large picture frame I built. I painted with acrylic craft paint, distressed the edges and finished with the wax. It was super easy to work with, it was fast, and I achieved the exact finish I was looking for. Much easier and faster than any spray or laquer top coat I've used in the past. Apply, wait 15, buff off, done. Finish wasn't oily or sticky and I was able to handle the piece within moments of finishing. Plus, I barely made a dent in the can. This stuff will last me forever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff is AMAZING!!! I recently purchased a bedroom set that had seen better days. Some surfaces were veneer and some wood, so I sanded and painted. Most top coats/sealers tend to turn yellow when using over a light color paint....this did not! Super easy to apply and clean up is a breeze! August 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff REALLY WORKS !! It is the very best wax that I have used for my wood projects. The shine it leaves is unbelievable. It is is easy to work with too. March 22, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what you are looking for Perfect for projects where a nice finish is desired, but where polyurethane is overkill. Application is as easy as waxing your car. July 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lasts and lasts This is a great product. Furniture pieces I built and finished with it 30 years ago still look fantastic! I am currently building an entertainment center for my daughter and intend to use this as a topcoat. It is also very easy to apply! May 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Protection Great protection for fine wood finishes. I use it as the final step on most of my fine wood & acrylic woodturnings. One can will last me forever! November 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I used the 'special dark' version of this wax on a mahogany desk that had lots of scratches in the poly finish. Use 600 grit sandpaper to remove fine scratches and swirls then apply this wax with #0000 steel wool. It takes some buffing but leaves an excellent hardened finish. September 2, 2013
