Both HD and Lowe's only carry tung oil finish. I want to make a 50/50 mix of
tung oil/poly as a wiping varnish - is tung oil finish the same thing?
If not, where can I get plain tung oil? The nearest woodworking stores are a
LONG drive from my house.
Yeah, Woodcraft store sell them. They are damn expensive. I was there
on the weekend, wondering whether to buy and try one my project. But
there are many kinds/mixture of Tung oil. Can you explain how to use
them? I believe David Mark use Tung oil on most of his woodworking
I have read Bob's book, especially on Tung Oil. If I follow his advice I
shouldn't use Tung Oil as a finish. Yet I have seen many woodworkers finish
their most prized work in Tung Oil e.g. David Mark. Is Bob too biased?
I believe ace hardware stores carry tung oil. If a wiping varnish is your
aim adding oil to varnish isn't the way to go about it. All you need to do
is thin it down fifteen or twenty percent. Mixing one part oil, one part
thinner, and one part varnish would give you a Danish oil whose attributes
can be changed by varying the ratios a bit.
