Wetsanding Oil Finish

Recommended Posts

anything to be wary of?

the coats of oil would be dry of course, but would it interfere with the oils properties?

Didn't you ask this elsewhere?

The tung oil mix I'm using (Le Tonkinois) is rated for marine applications. So if it can handle the open seas, it can handle a little bit of tap water.

But like you read in the other thread, use the oil itself to wetsand between coats--no water.

IThe final sanding is different, since you've given the oil time to cure, so in theory at least it's completely dry. On my test piece, I final sanded with water and that worked out just great.
