Applying the oil will raise the grain a bit. Use steel wool or 220 grit sandpaper to smooth it back out after each coat is applied. Three coats later and I'm happy with it. If you like it glossier apply more. Oh, and don't forget to let it dry completely in between coats and before sanding. Clean the fish tank, if you need something to do while you're waiting.
