Tung oil finish

11-30-2015 01:34 AM by BigD1 | 4 comments »

Could use some insight on the best way to apply Tung Oil. I’ve read cut the first coat 50-50 with paint thinner. Let stand for 24 hours between coats. Apply 3 coats and call it good. Does this meet the experts opinion. Please reply back. Thank you for your time and knowledge.
