I finished a project a few months ago with boiled linseed oil, and it turned out great. Since I had read that you should reapply BLO once a month for the first year to keep the finish looking good, I did that three days ago.
Sadly, I went from memory and applied a liberal coating and left it to dry overnight. That left a sticky, glossy finish which looks horrible. I guess I should have applied a light coat, and used a cloth to dry off the excess before it dried.
It seems that the BLO did not penetrate the wood at all.
Is there anything I can do to remove the sticky BLO coat, or do I need to sand it off ?
