    What kind of finish can I use in cooler temps.

    I'm posting this in this section hoping I can get an answer sooner. I have my cigar box guitar ready to apply finish. I was going to use some Formby's Tung Oil finish I have but I'm concerned about the cooler temps and the finish drying. I have a heater going in my shop but it is only about 60 degrees. Can I use this finish and will it dry or take forever to dry?

    Tom you will be fine with that at 60 deg but if it seems slow just take it in the house for awhile

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    It won't be a problem, but like Jay said it will take longer. Here's an interesting article on cold shops you may find of interest.
