.....and DON”T use any MinWax sanding sealer either before or after the oil you choose.
Why not just use a wiping tung oil varnish? Ya get all the benefits (bennies) of the oil color as well as the sealing properties of varnish.
Old Masters wiping tung oil varnish (no connection) has been a winner in my shop for a long time. There are others out there.
What was the old saying? Wipe on, wipe off? Good pre-prep and a well washed T shirt cloth will give you a great finish after several coats.
I usually follow up with a 0000 steel wool and wax rub out. Then, buff with another hunk of the cotton shirt.
Just my opinion.
Oh, didja get the feeling that I don’t like MW? That stuff might be for painters, but it ain’t for quality woodworker’s finishing projects.
