Charles, I use it to bring out figured grain in pieces I do not stain. I find it pops grain better than just using Arm-r-seal. I always test finishes on scraps of the same wood, and I find the danish oil does the best job (I have tried straight poly, shellac, and danish oil). I’ve tried using just boiled linseed oil, but it takes forever to dry (if it ever dries). I find my “danish oil” (1/3 BLO, 1/3 mineral spirits, 1/3 poly) dries faster, and actually does dry.

I’d be open to suggestions of popping out the figure in unstained pieces before finishing. Lately I’ve been spraying my finishes with MUCH better results. GF enduro sprays really well and looks awesome.
