    Geezus!!! You deserve a medal.

    Funny enough I had to make some today. I wanted something longer than the standard 48mm (size 10), so I made some 55mm out of some redgum offcuts.

    It is why MinWax is so amazing. 3 years after I first opened it and it is still usable. It is like magic. I still have half a tin of it. Hopefully the Zinsser will behave the same.
