I absolutely enjoy working with this product, it finishes with a beautiful even low luster sheen, that allows the natural feel of the wood as opposed to the smooth feel of spray on finishes that i have been using for 28 years. I have used it on several interior pieces and am currently using the hybrid on a exterior table top. I give it 4 stars though because if a custom color or effect is what the project calls for, although the products in the individual lines can be mixed to achieve a custom color or effect , it can get pretty expensive ordering samples to mix and test for customers approvals, for instance, the table top has a thinned version of Authentic #1, followed by a mix of Pure and Black 1st coat application, then a lighter combination of Pure and Teak as a second application. To achieve this i had to order approximatly $300 worth of product to play with. Rubio having a color mixing recipe guideline would be helpful. As trends go it would be nice to have an effects and color mixing data base to refer to for furniture makers, i completed a exterior bench that i was able to accomplish a drift wood look on the seat , however not without another large purchase to play with the colors and layering effects. However over all i believe strongly in this product and will continue to use it.
Finding a truly non toxic yet standup product for protecting our deck was made easy with the use of this Hybrid Wood Protector. Fast shipping is a great perk, too!
awesome, easy to work with and best of all, one coat is all it needs!
Again, Rubio's Hybrid Wood Protector is a great choice for my outdoor furniture. Easy to apply and low VOCs keep me coming back.
