Maybe Bri will chime in
Sorry Tom, I missed this originally... The finish is a Tung Oil, hand applied finish. I don't have a place to spray a finish, and actually, I don't care for the toxic nature of spraying finishes, and so, I haven't created a space to spray... I've done it before, with Nitro-cellulose... and of course, it's the 'normal' nice finish... but I like the Tung oil better. It takes longer to apply, I'll put at least 30 coats on it before the end. I tried a grain filler this time, to try to cut the time spent filling open grain with Tung Oil, but I didn't like the way it went, sanded it all down to the wood again, and now, the grain is entirely filled, and the coats are starting to build.
