Re: oil vs varnish vs epoxy

After several years and trying various products, I have come to the conclusion that Cetol is the best compromise in terms of looks/protection/maintenance. It doesn't look as good as varnish (nothing does IMHO), but its MUCH easier to apply; its almost as easy to apply as oil. As for durability, it won't last as long as varnish, but it does last longer than oil.
