Turning Archive 2005
>This 14 in. X 5 in. poplar bowl was finished with walnut oil I purchased at a health food store, and the oil finish went rancid (what a stinking mess). I removed the walnut oil with synthetic steel wool, and then applied 5 coats of Russ's tung oil mixture, and buffed. I have used walnut oil before, and I have never had any go rancid before, and now I will be hesitant to use it in the future.
