The sanding part is fun. The finishing part is an area that I am apprehensive about as I am not sure what to do. The blanket chest is back here to have finish put on it and I am not sure what to put on it. The gun chest has linseed oil on it and I guess it like that OK. My favorite part is drawing it up and working it all out on paper before I start. I haven't done anything with wood lately as It has been a very busy year for Me. Thank You.

Shop teacher used to have us apply some Danish oil (may have been a thin type of linseed)... we would apply, let it soak in a bit. Then rub it down to remove excess oil. Let dry. Steel wool between coats, wipe with damp cloth - then let it dry before coating again. I think we did 3 coats I gave a very thin finish, but really showed off the wood and grain.

If I want a real glossy finish, then I like to use polyurethane (which seems to be a good protectant from water damage - like rings from a wet glass).

But others who do finishing may have other, or better, ideas.

The linseed oil is like that. I think that I put 6 coats on the gun chest. I was just ready to be finished. I need to work on my daughters blanket chest.
