Step 1: Finishing Wood With 100% Pure Tung Oil, Using the Hub at Techshop.
I have always used 100% Pure Tung Oil when I am finishing my frames. I used a Cherry wood frame for this Instructable. The reason why i use 100% pure Tung Oil, is that you only need one coat of oil. Yep that is what i said one coat.
Put down cardboard to cover the work surface. I pour that oil in to a small dish, so i don't end up spilling the oil over everything. Dipping the rag in to the oil, putting a medium amount of oil on to the rag. Rubbing the oil into the wood, moving the direction of the grain. If you happen to apply to much oil, you can just wipe the oil off.
Let the oil set for 24 hours before use.

You may want to test a small piece of scrape wood to see what the finish is going to look like. i have pictures of a few different types of wood that I applied Tung Oil too.
