I am making a dining table from walnut I've had for 40yrs. I would like to keep it looking as natural as possible. With that being said can i finish it with boiled lynceed oil vs varnish, stains or poly
Hello Jim just a quick response, I built a stereo cabinet a few tears ago from walnut and walnut ply. I used Rubio Mono coat oil plus and very happy with the results. You can purchase a small amount and try it out
Defining 'Natural' is quite broad in the wood coating industry. Boiled linseed oil will dramatically change the 'character' and color of the walnut, and take several days to fully cure.
If you are looking to preserve the present character and color of the walnut, and only add a protective finish, then you may want to look for a waterborne lacquer.
That's the craziest spelling of linseed I've ever seen!!! Congratulations. Have you ever used boiled linseed oil before, as the only finish? You can finish it any way you want, but just how much repair and maintenance do you want to do?
I would sand it with 180 first then 220 seal with chemcraft precat waterbourne sealer sand with 320 repeat then topcoat chemcraft low gloss or satin sand 320 topcoat 1 more time. My opinion.
