Finishing a tru-oil finish

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm tru-oiling a swamp ash body at the moment, I've got 6 coats on now, it's starting to look pretty sweet. I'm following the instructions I was pointed to at LMI, but I'm slightly confused about the final step;

When I've got enough coats of tru-oil on and let it dry completely, the tutorial says to use a lemon oil treatment to prevent fingerprinting - I got hold of some lemon oil, but it says it's only to be used on unfinished wood. Is there a difference between a lemon oil treatment, and just lemon oil?

Have any of you got any tips on the final polishing and buffing of a tru-oil finish?
