When North Dakota Prison industries first started their custom furniture inustry, all their furniture was finished with Danish Watco Oil. We applied the Watco oil with sponde brushes and wipped off the access with rags. We would then take 000 steel wool and apply 2 coats of wax using the steel wool. Take terry cloth rags and buff out after each coat. It makes a beautiful finish that was easy to do, repare and keep looking new by waxing once in awhile.

DO NOT throw you rags in a pile. Lay them out to air dry or put them in a metal container with a lid. They can ignite if left in a pile before drying. Good luck on your finishing project.

God Bless
