    Do you 'flood' on second, third.... coats, or rag them on?

    Here is one of the clocks with the first coat of oil flooded on. I love the waviness of the grain and this Walnut. These are going to turn out nice!

    Rag 'em on; wait 15 minutes or so; then wipe off the excess. Throw rags out into the driveway and leave at least overnight to prevent spontaneous combustion.

    The figure sure looks nice with some oil on it. I've had good success following Jim's suggestion for Danish oil (and other oil/varnish/thinner mixes like Antique Oil and Formby's Tung Oil Finish). In my dry climate, though, I have to start wiping after about 5 minutes instead of 15. Otherwise it gets too tacky.

    I've been looking for a good source for tuna oil. All I can find is cod liver, lol.

    Good catch (pun intended), but you missed the reference a sentence or two later to ting oil. I have corrected both.

    I saw the ting oil reference. I just couldn't think of a smart-aleck remark that didn't include "...tang, Walla-Walla bing bang".
