>I turned curly Redwood bowl and put BLO on it thinned with a little Mineral Spirits. Then again, and again, and again...... I have been applying it for a couple of days, several coats a day, and it keeps drinking it up. This is the first time I have turned Redwood, it is also the first time that I have had a wood continue to drink up the oil.
Any one with this experience with Redwood or other wood? The wall thickness is about 3/8", I just don't know where it could all be going.
