Love this stuff. Looks kind of like maple syrup in color. I can’t tell you how it affects light wood. The “lightest” wood I’ve used it on is cherry and it’s wonderful, but use something like Charles Neil’s conditioner beforehand for cherry. Have used it on walnut and mesquite, looks terrific.

Definitely not glossy. Enough coats and I think you can approach semi-gloss. I have 3 coats on a desk and I wouldn’t call that one semi-gloss. I’ve gone five on other things and it comes close.

Reasons I like it: you get a terrific, natural look; wood feels great to touch; extremely easy to use.
