Advice regarding a homebrew tung oil sealer/finish similar to Waterlox Original Finish
I would like to try making my own tung oil based varnish. My favorite over-the-counter finish is Waterlox Original Sealer/Finish. I have used it for many years on all kinds of woodworking projects and just like the appearance and durability. Before I jump in and try this homebrew recipe I thought I’d see if this looks reasonable:
1/3 Mineral Spirits (something like Klean Strip Odorless Mineral Spirits).
1/3 Rust-Oleum Varathane 242186H Oil Based Urethane Spar Varnish.
1/3 Pure Tung Oil (something like Hope’s Pure Tung Oil).
Thanks in advance for any suggestions and advice you can give me on this.
