Kay, please keep in mind when dealing with all of the finishing methods and types, that there is a danger to your health and safety if you should mix some of these together in an enclosed space without good ventilation. Especially, when using BLO – always lay your application rags out flat in an area with a lot of ventilation (outdoors, preferably). BLO saturated rags can self-ignite if left wadded up. I cannot stress the care you should exercise when using BLO – I know I nearly burned down a shed once when I forgot about the contaminated rags; furtunately, I forgot something and walked back into the shed and saw a small fire in the waste can.
