.......Boy am I impressed
I have recently got hold of some Watco Danish Finishing Oil in the "Natural" tint, meaning no color, or not much I guess, the only other Watco I have had is the "Dark Walnut" and it is a "Pigment" stain which I do NOT like on most things, leaves the grain in the wood "Muddy" IMHO.
I did another shallow square bowl tonight, getting these down fairly well now, took about 35 mintues from mounting it on the screw chuck to wiping the oil on it.
here is a pic of it before the oil.......
This is some of the "Tochi" wood I got with the curl in it, nice stuff. The piece is about 6" square.
Here are two pics of it after a very LIBERAL coat or three of the Watco Natural oil...........

Boy did that grain POP!
Now this is the "Hardening Oil" so in a day or so, I should be able to buff it out to a nice shine, (is a day or so long enough?).
Boy I can't wait, beats the heck out of the rattle can lacquer
I wonder how "Tough" the Watco is, anyone care to comment on that?
