After sanding and sanding and then sanding some more I have finally started to get a little finish on this thing. I have been trying to decide what to use and finally decided to use Minwax Tung Oil Finish. I have been using the polycrylic a lot lately and want to do something else. I have debated using it over the tung oil finish but I am a little worried. I am working on a sample piece and the tung oil will have time to fully dry while I work on it.
I figured I would show my sample piece also
I sanded it up the same way I did the box and then put a coat of tung oil on it with a clean rag.
Here is the same process with the box.
I love the way the tung oil makes that grain pop!!!!
In the next episode I will post the results of my sample and possible a finished box.
Any ideas or don’t do’s on the finish are most welcome.
