I agree as it has no silicone in it which can cause splotching on wood. I use something that is called top cote. I use it because I got it as a gift several years ago and still have some. It works really great but is rather spendy on its face. However I've had it (the first can) for about 6 years and I use it on all my table tops.
There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.”

Any wax not containing silicone is fine. I use Minwax finishing wax because that is what I have on hand.

Never imagined I would use as much of a can as I have.
