I'm totally puzzled every time this particular formula comes up. Now, 1/3
each varnish, oil (of your choice), and thinner (mineral spirits makes sense
as a home brew. for a hand rubbed oil finish look with a bit more protection
then just the oil would give.The thinner and the low ratio resins from the
varnish giving better penetration of both the oil and resins. .
However two oils and a varnish that is already a mix of thinner, resins and
yet another oil? What I see is a thick gooey mess that, with the very small
ratio of thinner, will have minimal penetration leaving most of resins, that
would normally soak into the wood with a thinner mix, left to be wiped off
and no particular benefit in appearance and or especially protection.
To my mind it's a miracle that the worst you have is crystals.
