Topic tags/keywords: question finish red cedar suggestion

Here are a couple cribbage boards I’ve made. These are finished with “tung oil finish” I have mixed feelings about the results. I’ve been told that pure tung oil will give better results. What are your suggestions? I’m relatively new to finishing, so I would appreciate all the help I can get!

At what ratio? Do you rub this on, and then wipe off excess? Pure tung oil?

I’ve tried using sanding sealer, but it changes the color or the wood.

I’d go with shellac.

Have your say...
