Almost ready to start on the finish for the jewelry box. I'm thinking tung oil, because what Tom Niemi used on the beautiful one he made. What is the best/proper way to apply it. My bottle says to thin the initial coats with turpentine, well mineral spirits do the same thing? I hate to go buy turpentine for one project, but will if it is best. Mineral spirits is something I use often, don't mind buying it. Any other advice or is there a better finish, (without starting a war here).
