Minwam (spelled incorrectly on purpose) is for the lazy. It is inferior in blending and spreading quality, has issues with yellowing, chipping, and tends if colored to be foggy; does not enhance grain. I suppose it is okay for those applications where the wood is not of high quality but I will not use it myself. Big market share is mostly related to advertising (brand recognition) rather than producing a quality product. Over years, for small applications I have given it a 'new' try: I have NEVER been pleased with the result.

Lots of good info, Jamie! Thanks! Unfortunately, I have in fact used the minwax, but not for anything special. I will remember to try a different product next time to compare the difference.

The difference is more work, better result. Depends on the project I suppose. Fine for trinkets or cheap shelves and stuff, I guess. Real wood has soul and deserves to be treated that way. (Alrighty then...cawl me a wood-bee-snob Hilarious! )

Jamie - My dh has worked with wood most all his life and would agree with you about wood having a soul. The soul of a beautiful tree that stood tall once. A living thing. I agree, too! Thumbs up
