When I first started turning I used BLO and then after a couple of weeks sprayed one piece with several light coats of lacquer and the other I used wipe on poly. Both turned sticky after several months. If I use BLO then it is only BLO. I use Minwax Antique Oil or Danish Oil most of the time. These I do not have trouble if I want to add more shine with lacquer or poly.

and say, “Hi, Honey, I’m home – forever.”
To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
