    See how the Danish oil makes the grain "pop".

    The oil will have to dry for a few days before I start with a urethane finish.

    In the meantime, I will busy myself refinishing a patio table I built 12 years ago from rescued pallet wood.

    Looks great! It will look even better next summer with a frosty mug of beer sitting on it.

    Looks great. I prefer Sikkens Cetol. Gives great depth, clarity, and protection.
