Don, I don’t know how similar MinWax Tung Oil Finish is to what you are using, but I have great success applying Tung Oil Finish with a cotton cloth and then continuing to rub until it is dry to the touch.Repeat once a day for 3 applications. I have not done any sanding or steel wooling with this method and get a very nice end result. I apply Renissance Wax with a white Scotch pad after the finish is cured to give it that silky/ touchable feel. I’ve posted several projects finished this way you can look at.
