Timberlux is a great product that you can use to revitalize your stock or to use as a finish coat on a refinish job.

Brian just posted my Citori Skeet gun that I re-did with Timberluxe. It was grimy, black in the checkering and worn blonde elsewhere. I stripped it and used his walnut stain and timberluxe. EASY, for me, and I'm not great at this type of thing. That teeny $12 bottle will probably do at least two guns. I am totally sold on it.

The only downside I can really see is that after it's open a while it becomes thick and viscous and the shelf life is rather short. I'm not sure if you can thin it. Others will know. My bottle has been open a month, it's half full, but noticeably thicker.

If it is in fine condition, then leave it be.

I spray a little blast off in the bottle to displace any oxygen before putting the cap on. It last for months this way.

It compressed inert gas in a can. Sold for dusting off key boards and electronics. Be careful too big a blast and you will refinish the bench!
