Correct, make sure they don’t have any resins added. Some of them have varnish in them so they only need one or two coats. I assume you meant mineral oil versus mineral spirits. Mineral oil is not a polymerizing oil and never really dries, or will feel oily until it finally does anyway, so I would not recommend that for this application. I really like Tried and True brand finishes. I usually use their varnish oil but their Original finish which is basically BLO with wax would be my choice for this. Of course you can always add the wax separately for a little extra water resistance. There may be other oil finishes that are better for this application but I have not used them.

Haha, yea mineral oil, sorry bout that.
Yea I do remember reading about people mixing BLO and wax. Come to think of it, that sounds good to me. Its just that furniture, plain wax right? and like a 50/50 mix of BLO? Or was it bees wax shavings and the oil?
