This product is as easy to use as it gets. I applied this to a stained plywood plank floor that my husband and I installed in our cabin. I applied the Lumber-Seal with a brush so that I had more control. The product has a very minor odor that is definitely not offensive. It is thin and has a milky white appearance when first applied but dries to a beautiful satin finish. I love that it is non-toxic!!! I would recommend this product to anyone that wants an easy-to-use wood sealant.

We built a completely wooden sustainable house in the tropical rainforests of a Belize ecovillage. Rainy season is amazingly humid and the rains are brutal when they hit. Rainy season lasts 8 months. Dry season is really, really hot and the sun is harsh. The environment is tough here.
We imported Lumber-Seal and sprayed it on our initial shed and eventually our to our house. We can certainly see the beaten parts that we missed. It's kind of embarrassing. It hasn't even been a year in these harsh conditions, and the Lumber-Seal portions are unscathed, and the unprotected parts are battered. The stuff doesn't smell like chemicals either, which is a bonus. There's no smell when dry. It keeps the natural hugh of the wood, though it does make it richer in the natural color. A little goes a long way too - especially when sprayed.
One must just cover up when spraying it on. It's sticky at first, then in these humid conditions takes a few days to dry. I am sure it would dry way faster in dry season. Laundry takes a week to dry in wet season. Nonetheless, I would certainly recommend this stuff to the rest of my village. It's certainly an ecovillage staple, I'd say.

Wanted a non toxic sealer to prolong the life of my outdoor, untreated wood compost bin that I use to make vegetable garden soil. Product went on smoothly and easily. Turned untreated wood a pleasing gold color. As far as durability...only time will tell.
This stuff is great! Easy to apply, coverage is generous, and best of all, it works! The "after" photo was taken about 2 months after application. I was surprised the wood wasn't absorbing any water. It does seem a little steep at $40, but it works. Better to spend a few more dollars than waste $ and time with something else. Just wish it were stocked and not limited to online sales.
This product was very easy to apply and dried quickly. I have been using this on my own lumber cut from my own trees, which have been drying naturally indoors for about 7 years. The wood soaked it up. I did find that if you lay two boards/beams together to stack after applying this product, they tended to "stick" together, even though they were completely dry. So once you seal the lumber, I don't recommend stacking it on top of each other. I cannot comment yet as to whether or not how well it works or how long it will work, I just used it Summer of 2015 on my porch project. I am hoping to have great results as far as sun resistance and weather resistance. I have a feeling I will have to treat my lumber again in a year or two. Not that the product has shown me flaws, just my gut feeling on products like this. I did apply 2 coats to everything. When I sprayed the ceiling and rafters, I made sure to apply pretty thick as well.
