I have many unfinished sticks that my son was curing. What is the best kind of oil to use to finish these sticks? Thank you for any response.
RodneyI like Tung Oil, Boiled Linseed Oil is also good. Both take several coats with a day or so between coats to build up a good finish.

CAS14I think that it's personal preference. Appearance, feel, maintenance, and ease of application, all are likely factors. I've used 100% tung oil, the Formby's "tung oil", Danish oil, and all kinds of marine spar varnish. Now I've returned to Tru-oil which I used 55 years ago to finish gun stocks. I was surprised to find that it is still made, earlier this year.

Counting Down the days!
Little over 6 months.í ½í¸€
Little over 7 months until Retirement - then more time for woodworking and sticks!
I am soooo ready to move! Prepping the house to show is getting very tedious and annoying. Why did I buy a house?
CAS14Hope you are now settled in your new home! We moved six years ago, and said this was the last, the home before the home. Now she's talking move again! ;-)
