Could you please suggest a simple finishing schedule to me for my walnut chandelier. I want it to be a very dark but be able to still see as much of the grain as possible. And would you be so kind to include the drying time I need on each step? And could you please suggest products that won’t take very long to cure/dry?
Just a quick note I must add:
I already tried to finish this slab of walnut using BLO, then Watco Danish oil, dewaxed shellac and crystalac grain filler but somewhere I messed up and the piece turned not so very great. Some spots seemed to have absorbed more oil than the others. I also followed the instructions out of the cans and I think that led me to working with costs that weren’t fully cured. So I’ve just sanded the piece back to bare wood and am seeking your help.
I live in a basement and don’t have access to Very much sunshine this time of the year. Though I have a nice heater in my little shop if that’ll help with faster drying time.
