Need help oiling wood paneling


Thank you Ric, Mike and Zircon. I just finished the third and final coat! It's not PERFECT (eg, there's a water spot on the far right I couldn't get out) -- if I wanted a perfect job, it would have had to have been completely sanded, re-stained, then finished. I wasn't willing to put in that much effort. That said, my wife and I are very pleased with the outcome. I've attached a before and after picture. Thanks very much, again, I really appreciate all of your help! / Rav

Yes. First I wiped down well with mineral spirits, used 000 steel wool in a few places, then 3 coats of Watco Danish Oil (natural), with 24 hours between each coat.

Wow - looks great, Rav - and thank you for the thank you. Be aware that over the next several days, that sheen is going to mellow out to a really nice glow. I think you're gonna be happy with this finish. Great job.
