Hi Jocks
I am sure this question has been asked a gazillion times, but I can’t seem to find one right on the point in thies forum.
I have just built a couple of bedside tables and am wondering what to finish the tops with. I have experimented with wax and Danish Oil on some scraps. I love the finish of both of them, however, they are not resistant to coffee cup rings and wine glass stains (yes, I test drove scrapwood!)
Do you have any suggestions. I am not a fan of shellac. Is there some way that another finish can be applied over Danish oil?
Cheers
Max

You can use polyurethane over the Danish oil.

Thanks Wayne
I was unaware that you could do that, especially as the instructions on the poly say to remove all traces of oil.
How long should I let the oil dry?

I would let it try a minimum of 72 hours.

In my project gallery, the blanket chest was done with Watco Danish Oil, and poly.
