Subject:
Is there a "clear" oil finish?

Carole in VA
>That will not darken light woods? Or that an impossible quest? Are there some oils that have less of a darkening effect than others? The ones I have seen all seem to have the same amber tint. Also, it seems that higher I go with the sanding grits, the less effect the oil has on the color. Is this my imagination or is it maybe because it can't penetrate as deepely on a highly sanded ( micro mesh) piece?
