Wooden nickels were most commonly issued in the U.S. in the 1930′s, after the start of the Great Depression. A more popular American adage, “Don’t take any wooden nickels” is considered a lighthearted reminder to be cautious in one’s dealings and is in fact directly related in meaning to our story here.

I am on my 3rd qt. in the past 3 years
I used this on a work bench/desktop in a warehouse environment 9 months ago. Gets use all day long and still looks like new. I finished a name/sign for my cabin 3 years ago, and this year I hit it with sandpaper and put on another coat. Looks good. Quick, easy to use, easy cleanup.
Great product Would definitely buy again
I used this to cover the milk paint on my kitchen cupboards. Turned out beautifully. Easy to use, easy to clean up.
