A few years back I read a finishing article by Andy Rea about a wipe on finish for case goods and small traffic projects. So I had all materials on hand and decided to give it a try and it’s been one that I use on plenty of my tables and small projects. It has a very soft and satin finish with a very durable
One Part BLO
1/2 Part Wood Grain Filler
1/2 Part Quick Dry Lo Sheen Varnish or Satin Finish
Use a good storage contain because this will keep for quit some time. It will need to be stir because the filler will settle to the bottom after long periods of storage.
Use gloves and wipe finish on across the grain and let dry for 15 to 20 min. and buff with soft cloth. “NOTE these rags are extremely flammable and should be air dry before discarding.”
Apply a 2nd coat and buff out after 15 to 20 minutes. Let dry over night and repeat if so desire.
I know most of you guy will use this time tested finish and will enjoy the warm satin feel of this finish, good luck your friend in woodworking …Wilson aka Blkcherry
