Quick Way to Beautify Your Wood Pieces
By The How-To Gal on Aug 08, 2012
A side-by-side comparison of what a little Danish oil can do to some thirsty wood.
Make sure your wood is free of any coatings. As mentioned, somehow soapy water did that for me. If you are not so lucky, you will need to strip your wood or start with raw wood.
There are many different brands of Danish oil, but I purchased the Watco brand at Home Depot in the Dark Walnut finish. I love a dark wood grain.
Per the instructions, flood surface using brush or cloth. Applying it with a cloth seemed easier for me because of the vinyl upholstery.
Forever ago, I had an old flannel sheet I ripped into squares that are prefect for this sort of thing and all my projects. They are great because I can just throw it away after.
