Today (night in my country), I post a question on how to apply Danish Oil, an oil finish that I never had chance to use before. Furtunately a newly opened ACE Hardware Store is just 5 minute drive from my home. So I managed to get a can of Danish Oil and also a can of BLO.
With the support and guides from many fellow LJs, I’ve more confident to try it now, eventhough I’ve been frequently reading books on finishing that covers from oil finishes to water base finishes but as I said in my forum post, I’m a slow learner (from book).
Thanks to Charlie M, Bigwoodturner, Scott Bryan and Randy for your answers, tips & explanations, and to those reading my post.
I have only one very small project to try out this oil finish, ie a scraper holder made from pallete board. I guess it is from pine (correct me if I’m wrong). Inspired by Julian’s version I made this scraper holder with slight modification. So here it is;
Picture 1: The main body is taking shape
Picture 2 and 3: Completed but Unfinished (back view and front view).
Picture 4 : First Coat of Danish Oil (approximately after 45 minutes ago).
I hope I may be able to put three more coats tomorrow then I will apply paste wax and hand-buff it.
