There will always be differences of opinion on forums like this. I’ve used a lot of BLO, and the most I ever waited for it to dry was one week when being top coated with waterbornes. I’ve never had a problem with anything not curing on top of it once the BLO itself had cured enough. With most other finishes I only wait one day, with shellac even less (same day, sometimes). Now, the OP said the table was oiled a month before he topcoated; I would bet the month’s SS check (if they get sent out) that if it was BLO it didn’t impact the curing of the varnish. I didn’t say in my original replay, but I was thinking along the lines ofwhat Justjoe said about Minwax. I consider them the Harbor Freight of the finishing world (I hope that isn’t too insulting to HF).
