I'm working on some walnut and have some questions. I'm new to wood working
1) I plan to use tung oil. Does anyone have any tips? How long should I leave it on before wiping off? Can I varnished over the oiled wood once dry or is there another step before varnishing?
2) I plan to use a black wood filler to fill some knots on the surface. I purchased Probond max by Elmer's. Ebony color. Is this product any good and is it ok to use with tung oil?
3) Can anyone recommend any varnish spray guns that don't require a compressor? Or do they all require one?
4) I'm looking for the below protection finish. I am aware that is sugar maple and not wallnut. I'm looking for that shiny buffed finish. My question is what kind of varnish do I use and is that effect from buffing the sealed wood with a buffer?
I know that's a lot of questions, I just don;t want to mess up
Thanks in advance!
