Thread: Danish Oil & Minwax stain

  1. #1

    Question Danish Oil & Minwax stain

    Can I danish oil over minwax stain. I like the look of the Danish oil and the color of the golden oak stain. I just finished a white oak mantel and have it stained already. I really don't want to poly it

    Have any scraps laying around?I dont se why it wouldnt work as stain does not close the pores of the wood. Oil should be able to soak in over a stain, but try it on a few scraps on let them dry a few days to see how it looks.

    i`ll second the "try it on scrap" advice.....the oil might break down the binders in the stain and allow you to move the stain particles around when you`re wiping off the oil?

    Here are a few pics so far. I decided to poly it and try tintinf the oil next time rather that cahnce messing up the finish since I have a few hours of time invested in the project
