..a finish of this type ages well, too, because the film is thin. It may not be "durable" by commercial furniture standards, but it's extremely fast to refresh (the finisher lives in the house, so straw scenarios where it will look bad due to wear in 50 years aren't going to happen) and the layer isn't thick enough to cloud.

And the color will be nicer for all except the folks who like the dead look or sterile look to furniture (there's some of this in the guitar world, but I've seen the same with the obsession that hard maple should be bright white and stay bright white - it's pretty ugly).
