I have flooded Karsons maple burl wood gloat platter with clear Danish oil and let it sit for 4 days to completely dry. This piece soaked up a little more than 1 pint of Danish oil. Here is what the piece looked like before the Danish oil was applied:
Here is the platter after the Danish oil was applied and left to dry for 4 days. There are a lot of wild grain patterns in this piece and the Danish oil gave them some character. I will start applying satin wipe on poly today and will build up the finish over the next several days. The second platter needs another day of dry time before it will be ready for it’s first coat of poly.
