I just applied one coat of BLO on a Cedar picnic table.
I’d carefully chosen the most attractive boards for the seats and top (lots of brown tones, one board even a little pink), but after applying BLO it has all turned a murky yellowish tint. I had hoped for increased depth.
I had lower expectations for the legs, so I’m happy with them, but really would like to try and ‘fix’ the top.
After one coat of BLO, how deep will it have penetrated? Will it be feasible to orbital sand the top and seats, and try again with a different oil? Any recommendations for said oil?
The picture actually looks nicer than it does in person. It’s not terrible, I had just hoped for more.
