for outdoor projects i often use Spar urethane. it holds up well, and is intended for high moisture areas, such as a boat. lol

i have some stuff called "Formby's Tung Oil Finish" that says it is made with tung oil and other stuff. Is that what I want? Is it possible, or desirable, to get pure tung oil?
Thanks

You must have better stores.
three paint stores, none hardware store, none Borgs, none unfinished furniture store, none hardwood store, none.
I'll be near a Woodcraft store next week, if none there then it's off to mail order.
Formby's says it has tung oil, along with other oils. Might be linseed, might be Penzoil, who knows.
Maybe the butcher shop, get some tongue oil?

how expensive of a finish do you want to go????? cheap = spar varnish, does the wood no justice...(love that response by the way on spar varnish)
$$$ = try exterior polymerized tung oil...www.sutherlandwelles.com...
remember one important thing about this board, when it comes to finishes, there are as many opinions as their are posts..and they are all right! good luck
