Outdoor Surfix inside
« on: October 22, 2017, 10:58 AM »
I'm wrapping up a bathroom stand alone cabinet/dresser, and was going to go the easy route on finishing and use Surfix.  I'm wondering, though if it would make sense to go with the Outdoor oil for this appplication (as opposed to one-step or the standard), since it will be in a humid environment.

I believe the primary differences are no wax like the one step and UV protectors in the Outdoor.

Nice Edward...birds eye maple 🍁?

I’m working on some interior cabinets and used the One Step for the drawers. I liked it for sure. My sense is that the Outdoors seems like it lays on the top surface while the One Step seems to work into the wood more. I may be wrong but that is what it seems like to me. I’ll continue to use the One Step on the rest of the interior cabinetry. The One Step is also more subtle than the Outdoors treatment.

As Tom said, maybe it’s the UV inhibitors in the Outdoors that changes the appearance.

Thanks @Cheese and @tjbnwi   I'll go with the Heavy Duty then, and maybe add on a wax coating as a final step.  As you'll recall, it is a nightmare/futile trying to do in between sanding with the One-step, and I want to get good application of at least two coats with this project.

As for the wood, it's sapele.  I'm gonna post more about it in a separate project thread when I'm fully complete, but in brief, I had already planned to build the cabinet from Sapele, and had gotten the wood.  After I finished the carcasse though, I decided I was going to make 5 drawers instead of six, and so I found the 1x8s I had gotten for the drawer fronts were no longer wide enough.  So I went back to the lumber yard to pick up some wider boards, and as I was flipping through the stack I came across this amazing piece of curly sapele that was 14 feet long, which turned out to be enough for all the drawer fronts.  I can't wait to oil it and see the irridescent grain effect emerge.
