So I have a project that I have decided to step out of my comfort zone on the finishing. I am going to use boiled linseed oil because I am using pine and really like the look of pine with boiled linseed oil on it. I want to use a rubbing varnish on it for a top coat. I have never done this before I always either just use BLO or I use lacquer. I am curious how long should I need to let my BLO dry before I can apply the top coat. I am kinda in a rush so I may haft to scrap the idea and just go one or the other. Also is there any difference in using rubbing varnish vs. lacquer as a top coat?
I have read that you need to wait 24 hrs before applying the varnish, problem is that the project is for someone else and I am not sure I have the extra time.
Thank you in advance for your advice
