Should I wipe on a coat of linseed oil after oil-staining new bare
If I don't paint it, and don't need a great finish, I usually "finish"
wood one of two ways:
1) Linseed oil wiped on and wiped off, which brings out the grain and
leaves a nice finish. Not as nice as varnish or polyurethane, but
2) I used latex stain, if I want more color than linseed oil will
give. Depending on what it's used for, that's all I do, or I put
varnish or polyusethane on it.
This time I have a can of oil stain of a nice shade, different from my
usual, and I think I want to use it.
Will another coat of linseed oil accomplish anything good? Or will it
just make a mess? Is the stain all I need?
BTW, Red Devil doesn't seem to make stain anymore, based on its
BTW2, Why is the 1x6x8' board I bought made in Sweden? Don't we have
trees in the US?
