dtc, have you experienced any unwanted finish build-up over the years, or is that a benefit rather than a problem ?

Understanding the more frequent reapplicant, I just can't get past the high gloss of the 23, so we are going with Cetol SRD. Thanks everyone for the input, much appreciated.

SDR,
No unwanted finish build-up, for I spread the top coats very thinly.
A light coat every 3 to 4 years.

KevinW,
Are you familiar with the houses I mentioned...I believe seeing them in the flesh you would not describe them as high gloss.
A body of finish is desirable. It is easier to properly clean for future maintenance coats for one, and the body deters the wood from absorbing moisture.
I wish you luck and success again, do take pics showing the Cetol SRD freshly applied and a year or so later.
