      I have never used Tung Oil, does it take a long time to dry?

        Depending upon temperature and how heavy a coat you put on., Tung Oil can take up to 6 hrs to dry. I normally apply it then do something else and come back either half a day later or the next day to continue with the finish.

          I was actually planning on using Tung Oil tonight for something I just cut. The bottle directions (for pure Tung Oil purchased from Woodcraft) said to cut 50/50 with paint thinner (mineral spirits) for the first coats and then go to full strength, but it only said to wait an hour between coats.

          Is the 6 hours how long you wait after applying the Tung Oil before putting the shellac on, or are you waiting 6 hours between the coats of Tung Oil? (I'm still trying to figure out this finishing stuff; I spent a decade where wipe on poly was my one and only finish method.)

            I wait 6 hrs before top coating it. Might not have to but I do just to be sure. I seldom do full strength most of the time it is a 50 - 50 or 60 - 40 mix.

              Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole. I tried to sign onto our bank tonight and it is ‚Äútemporarily...

              My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

              Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

              Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
