Thanks to all for the advice! I wound up using 0000 steel wool after my last round of tung oil to smooth things out, and then applied Howard’s wax as the final coat. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out, and I think my wife was, too…..since she asked me to make a companion bench to the one I just finished!

It’s on my “New Year’s Resolution List” to do at least two more projects this year (seeing as how that bench took me quite a while to actually complete!), so it looks like I’ve found project #1!

Thanks again to everyone for the tips—more things for my skills toolbox!
