Hello All,

I was wondering if I could put BRIWAX over Boiled Linseed Oil. I have a piece of 2x4 reclaimed American Oak, I think white, that I made into a Pots and Pan rack for my kitchen. I put two coats of BLO and love the look, but it needs "something else", and I was wondering if Briwax would give my what I was looking for.

I'm looking for a nice satin finish.

What are my options?

Kind regards,
Brett

Ok, Tung Oil it is. Thank you. :thumbsup:



The wood looks more like red oak to me. You can put Bri-wax over linseed oil but I wouldn't recommend it for use in the kitchen. Briwax is bad to water spot and with normal kitchen cleaning I think you will have problems with the finish. I think you would have better luck putting tung oil over the linseed oil. Tung oil is waterproof.
