I knew there wasn’t much actual oil in the watco products but was under the impression that most woodworker felt it was a decent no hassle product for pieces that won’t see much abuse. Was I wrong in thinking this?

My goal was only to make the grain pop a bit and add a little protection. Especially to the MDF pieces because I didn’t want them getting damaged at the first sight of water.

After using the product though I was curious how expensive and labor intensive it would be to make my own next time with 1/3 linseed, 1/3 varnish and 1/3 spirits. How long does a home made batch last after making?
