Cosmic, I’m working some padouk, red oak and black walnut today for a box. I decided to try some Danish oil cherry on the oak and walnut to kind of tie it in to the padouk. All I needed was a shop rag, blue paper towel and I just wiped a little on and it’s done. Wiped it right off afterward.
I think with hardwoods you just don’t get the penetration nor do you need it often times. They take on color pretty well from oils.
