Had some time to turn today for once so i was out in the garage and opened up my 5gal bucket of oil soaking liquid (1-gal each of mineral spirits and linseed oil / 1 qt gloss varnish) and discovered that i had a mesquite bowl in it that i had forgotton about. It had been soaking for a little over 3 weeks. I took it out and let it drip dry and then wiped it down well and let it sit out on the work bench for 6hrs and then moved in side where its cooler. I am leaving it out to see how it will dry over time now - I am thinking at least 2-3 weeks to ensure it dry well. Then im going to buff it with WD and wax and call it done.
The attached picutres show it out of soak but it does look much better in real life - darker rich looking satin kind of color.
Comments or suggestions? ...........Thanks Dan
