  • boiled linseed oil

    Need some advice with this finish.

    I am building some walnut projects and really like the look the linseed oil provides (did some test boards). My question is about the compatibility of a topcoat.

    Most will say to use shellac, but what about oil based polyuethane? Is it compatible with a linseed oil finish?

    yes, it is compatible. I usually use a wipe-on mix of 1/3 mineral spirits, 1/3 boiled linseed oil, and 1/3 oil-based poly. It gives the amber of the linseed oil and the toughness of the poly.
