  • Minwax Antique Oil

    Does anyone know what to use to thin the antique oil? I poured mine into a mason jar for ease of use and it has started to thicken and I threw away the can and have not been able to fine one close by to check out the instructions, thanks.

    Most solvent based products can be thinned with Mineral Spirits. I haven't used it for a while but Antique Oil is basicly a thinned varnish that may have some Tung oil in it. You are better off and cheaper off mixing your own blend. A common ratio is 1/3 Mineral Spirits, 1/3 Varnish, 1/3 Linseed or Tung oil.

    I tend to use Turpinetine instead of Mineral Spirits because I like the smell better. But for your need's stick with Mineral Spirits to thin the Antique Oil.

    Hope this Helps

    One more thing the Antique oil may have some bee's wax also. You can also add bee's to suit your needs in the above mixture I mentioned.

      The Minwax Antique Oil Finish is composed of 34% Linseed Alkyd Resin and 66% Petrolium Thinners. You can use Mineral Spirits or Paint thinner.

        Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

        OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
