BLO and buff not enough
Apr 13th, 2008 at 3:56pm
 
I made an  green oak platter and let warp then keep soaking with BLO every few day in hope that it wouldn't crak and only warp which worked out good.  Then my brother came to visit and claimed it since he thought it would be a good sushi tray we buffed with tripoli and white diamond but now he wants a higher gloss and sealed with Poly or something.  Is there any thing speical I need to do since it has been buffed ( no wax ) before appling waterlox or a Poly?

The chances that the poly you are going to use will already have BLO as one of it's ingredients.

Since there is no wax, I would just lightly sand the surface then apply your finish.

For the most part, yes.

But... if you have allot of open pores, such as red oak, you may have some problems with any type of oil finish
