Polyx Hard Wax Oil

Has any one used OSMO Polyx Hard Wax Oil. I understand that it is used primarily on floors. According to a local sales rep it is used on high end furniture as well. I have all hard rock maple cabinet faces and maple veneer walls and door inserts. I was pondering using it on the wood in the trailer. Any thoughts?

I'm a huge fan of maple for cabinets. I'd like to do mine, the bulkheads, and the closet doors in maple.

I think that you need to put up some pictures.

Not exactly the thought you were looking for, though. I really can't speak about the OSMO product, it's a new one to me. I've always used a paste wax, usually Minwax. I made kaleidoscopes and sold them on the arts & crafts circuit and in shops. Final steps were sanding the finish with 1000 grit paper, burnishing that with a paper towel, and then applying Minwax. Beautiful finish.

Seriously though, let's see some photos of those maple cabinets!

I have all of them ripped apart now after a dry fit. I will post some pics after final install. That's why I was asking about this finish. It might be too good to be true I'm sure. Sound too easy, except for a 8 hour dry time.

The product is on my short list for the next cork floor among other projects. I especially like that it can be repaired, unlike polyurethane (and is approved for childrens toys, etc). Those I have spoken with have been pleased with it.

The people that you have talked to about the product, did they use it as a floor or general purpouse wood coating. IE cabinets?

I only asked about flooring, sorry. I figured on buying enough of it for other pieces as well (small items: side tables, decorative objects).
