kangaroomoleste: Everything the guy says makes me think it's waterlox. Which is disappointing as I just did 4900 feet of quatersawn oak plank with waterlox because the homeowner couldn't be convinced to go with a better product. In the end he wanted a very high build, gloss finish. It took 4 coats with a 220 up to 400 grit sanding to get it to what he wanted. I never recommend waterlox.
jonp888: Was this pure tung oil or rather a tung oil based finish such as waterlox?
Ginny G: I am going to be staining a raw pine farmhouse table for a friend and I wondered if the TUNG oil would be useful for this application? Would I just sand top and place a few layers of the oil on it? Would that seal it? Thanks!
janne623: Hello again. We are now laying the red ironbark floor. We are thinking of doing the sanding and application of the tung oil ourselves as the floor would need a maximum of a half to one millimetre sanded off. What sandpaper grade would you use to start and to finish. Any help greatly appreciated.
janne623: Thanks so much for your help.
P. Allen Smith: My understanding is that you only need one sanding and then a very thorough mopping before applying the tung oil, but no sanding after the fact.
janne623: I am about to lay a new hardwood floor of Red Ironbark. I would like to use Tung oil as the finish. Do I need to sand the floor after each application of Tung oil or as I was planning just one initial sand and then apply the oil after allowing it to harden?
hawgdad: Great to see you using tung oil on your pine floors vs polyurethane. it's an incredibly easy, maintainable, and sustainable finish. If you have wear in the future, just clean, and re-furbish the oil finish. No stripping required and blends in beautifully.
