I have a small project that I want to try using BLO on (have never used it)
It's Maple, Cherry and Walnut laminated in strips. My question is do I use it full strength, or do I cut it 2 to 1 with paint thinner as it says on the can.
Do I put a top coat of Poly after and can I use water based Poly or do I have to use oil or solvent base? Do I buff it with the Beall system before the Poly or after? Or do I actually have to buff it?
I really don't know why I want to use it other than I read so many posts where members say their projects were finished using BLO and several coats of Poly. I figure there must be a reason that so many do it, so I'll try it.
Thanks for the help
