Wet Sanding Tung Oil

Recommended Posts

wet sanding in between coats of tung oil?

would water interfere with the curing of the oil?

just like laquer, the coats would be dry; but......

this should actually be in the finishing section; sorry

when wet sanding between coats of tung oil just use tung oil as your lubricating agent. and you really only need to do it once or twice. wet sanding with tung oil creates a slurry (tung oil and fine sanding dust) and fills the pores so that the tung oil builds up a bit quicker. what you're doing with any oil finish is building up very thin layers of the finish until you get the patina that you like. if you sand with water between coats you are defeating your purpose and removing coats.

hope that helps and good luck
