...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

thanks for the kind words all.... had some questions on finishing here. I ran out of 80 grit sand paper on this one and after 30 minutes or so got rip- roaringly bored of trying to sand out everything with 120 grit. moral of the story is keep plenty of sandpaper handy. When I was finishing it I applied the usual coats of danish oil and found (as would be expected) that the areas that were still a little rough took much longer to saturate. After about 15 coats it built up enough in the wood that it became smooth. All of that danish oil makes it look great but the feeling when you touch it is almost tacky. Will this harden up in time? I left it overnight and it still seems just a little tacky. Id planned on adding WOP to it as well. Is WOP a finish that must sink in or can it sit atop a well built up layer of danish oil and possibly fix the tackyness problem. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated, happy turnin,
Bond

Hey Bond, I am not sure about the Danish oil but I have some wipe on poly that is not wanting to cure very fast right now. It is probably the weather, give a little more time.

What brand Danish oil?

I learned that some are a mix of boiled linseed oil and resins -- while the one I'd bought ("Tried and True") has no resins.

I don't know if that means one type will cure faster than the other -- but I've found that the stuff I use can take several days before it no longer feels tacky.

its watco danish oil from the home depot the wipe on poly is from home depot as well finally got the bottom all covered up today. Ill let it dry for 72 hours and if it is still tacky I guess ill wait a little longer just wanted to make sure there wasnt such a thing as too many coats with the oil. Id never put that many on before. Can't wait to see it after a few coats of poly.
