I finished the two small tables pictured here using Tung Oil Finish. The addition of the shelf gave me a lot of nooks and crannies to deal with, and while I was mostly happy with the result after three coats, I had to work like a mad man to apply and wipe fast enough not to end up with “sticky” areas. (Finished outdoors in the shade in about 30% humidity and mid 70s)
In retouching one of the apron faces, I thinned the off-the-shelf product a bit with mineral spirits and found that the wiping step went much easier. The final look is identical, so I don’t see a down side to thinning it a bit to extend my next small table application.
Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance !
