I have an oak book shelf I built 20 years ago, and it was finished with Watko danish oil twice, most recently about 10 years ago. We have just redone our wood floors, and the shelving needs to be much darker to go in the room now. I’m looking for some help for how to refinish.
I tried the darkest Watko oil I could find (dark walnut), but it isn’t nearly dark enough. Then I tried MinWax wood finish (Ebony). When I spread it on it looks perfect as far as color, but it isn’t really soaking in very well. Most of it wipes off, and the little that stays on stays quite sticky.
I’m wondering if any of the experts out there have some suggestions for a product or process that might be more effective for refinishing?
