« Part 1: does thinning tung oil work? Part 2 of thinning tung oil series Part 3: Results: end grain »

Here are the photos of the edge grains after ripping through the centers of the wells. Pure oil is at the top; 1:1 thinned oil is at the bottom. Poplar, silver maple, and walnut:

Looks like the oil is harder to see on edge grain than on end grain. The difference for the walnut is detectable, not inconsistent with better penetration of thinned oil. But is it due to thinning only or also due to grain direction variation?
