How to prevent finishes from going bad in the can – Eliminate the can

1 min read

I use Waterlox for most of my woodworking projects, but because of its cost and tendency to gel in the can, I’m usually reluctant to break the seal unless I have several things to finish at the same time. This is a bit of a nuisance, because I have to figure out where to safely store my almost-done projects until I’m ready for a batch finishing job.

You can save money and make finishes last longer by transferring larger containers to smaller ones, adding filler material like pieces of plastic to the can, or displacing the oxygenated air with Bloxygen or propane. Now, I’m giving Stop Loss Bags a shot, because the concept seems fundamentally sound. Full cans are effective at preserving finishes because they contain more finish than air. As the space occupied by liquid decreases, the space occupied by air increases. Chemical-resistant bags allow you to reduce the container size to match the remaining volume of liquid, so there’s no air to displace.
