I'm making a small box using cherry and have two questions.
1. If I finish with Danish Oil and them dont like it can I spray on a
lacquer finish after several days.
2. Will either or both finishes interfere with the natural aging
(darkening ) of the cherry. This is my first experience working with
The oil most definately will not delay the natural darkening. I prefer
a wax (watco) over the oil finish, maybe you'd consider trying that on
a sample piece? It really brings out the grain, and for a box it's not
like you need to be particularly tough of a finish. Worth trying to see
if you like it.
