I see no one else has answered this so I’ll take a crack at it….

I did some poking around the web and wasn’t able to find exactly what’s in that product. I can virtually guarantee there isn’t a drop of oil from teak wood in it. The best I was able to come up with is that it’s probably a phenolic varnish with a lot of mineral spirits thiner. If it’s a varnish I’m mildly surprised the wood soaked up so much finish. Though MDF may do that.

The basic rule of thumb is to wait until you can’t smell the finish anymore for it to be cured. The directions from Watco says to wait 12 hours before “light use.” I’d wait at least a day, probably better to wait a couple. You can probably wax it then.
