Turning Archive 2005
>I am always searching for the perfect combination of oils, solvents, driers, etc to speed up my oil finish without sacrificing quality. Yesterday I poured a couple of bottles together that were getting a wee bit old so I could use them up quickly for the first couple of coats before going to my better stuff for the last coats. Last night I used this on a vessel that I had just turned yesterday. Today it was dry already; dry enough even to sand. I sanded to 1500 grit and put another coat of the "mystery mix" on. Two coats in less than 24 hours and it looks great! The problem: I don't have a clue as to the proportions of the ingredients!
