“And I dont know about you guys, but I just love that “WOW” factor when you first wipe the oil on a dry piece of sanded wood and the grain just POPS !” It’s magic, Joe. If you’ll try BLO sometime, you’ll find that the Walnut will darken less, and you may be as amazed by the pooping figure in it as in the Maple. Danish is very nice, but, in my opinion, it just obscures darker woods too much. That’s why God gave us BLO. (Again, my apologies to Future Mark, for speaking out of turn.)

Thanks Mark. I actually have some BLO but that stuff is pretty darn THICK coming out if the can. Took forever to soak into some bowls I tried it on. So I’ve been diluting it with a little teak oil and some mineral spirits.
