Talk to me about Watco Danish Oil. How to apply?
Right, so with the arrival of Masters Hardware 5 min from my house, I now have easy, cheap access to all sorts of paints and glues from the good ol' US of A. STOKED! :hyper:
Picked up some Watco Danish Oil today.
How do I apply it for the best finish? Is it a rub in with progressive grades of paper like truoil? Or is there some other trick to it?
I've had success in woodworking projects sanding it into the grain/pores with very fine (600) wet-dry paper. It does very little to protect the wood, though. On an instrument I could see using a few coats to pop the grain/add chatoyance. It is an "in the wood" type finish more than a "film" if that makes sense...
I like Jazzdogg's tutorial here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f57/sa...finish-384222/ Even though he kinda spells out his move away from Watco, it also works nicely with Watco. I've used it on furniture refins and although you can get a really nice finish, it's not hardy against strikes, but it will take a long time to wear down IME... :)
