I have just finished putting together a small towel rack from cherry and am about to start my first attempt at finishing.
I picked up some Watco danish oil before really understanding what it is and I have some Renaissance Wax I’ve had for a while. I’ve been told they will work well together but I’m a little confused about the danish oil. Is it an oil based varnish or is it a mixture of oil and varnish?
I’m also open to suggestions as far as application. I’ve gone over every inch with a smoothing plane and have it glass smooth so I’m wondering if sanding would be needed and if so what grit would I start with? Once it’s smooth enough I figured I would apply the danish oil in a few coats and let it dry overnight before adding the wax waiting a few minutes then buffing. Am I on the right track here?
