Board of Directors, President
The antique oil is a good finish with a pretty fast drying time. Which is why I think a lot folks use it for that reason. That doesn’t mean I think you should rush out and get some. The Watco danish oil is just fine. I have used both and like them on an equal standing.Thanks everyone. I put some watco danish oil on it last night and it is looking nice. I don't want to touch it right now to stage a photo but I will post one eventually.
I have heard that Larry Williams uses minwax antique oil, I wonder what the benefits of it are.
I haven't finished my other planes, and I feel like I have to either be careful about leaving dirty fingerprints on them or just give up on the cosmetics altogether. This is going to be a test to see how oil and wax holds up.
