The Good Oil

Another night, or more correctly, another 24 hours, and another layer of oil onto the project.

This layer went on the same as the first, without needing any particular finesse, letting the wood suck up what it needs.  It was already noticeable the decrease in amount needed, as would be expected.  One more layer then the first sanding.  No point rushing these things.

On an side note, I have been wearing gloves while applying the oil/turpene mix, and even tonight wearing 2 pairs of non-latex, plastic food gloves (they are too sloppy to be any good in the kitchen) I found my fingertips damp by the end.  I suspect the turpene does a pretty good job of eating the gloves while I polish!
