Over the past three days the back and neck have had around 12 coats of Danish oil. After leaving it overnight in a warm room it was ready for the final coats of the oil finish.
I flatted it back using wet 600 grit paper, with just a tiny dab of washing up liquid in the water.
I cleaned and dried this off and then applied the final coats of oil. And here is the back finished.
It’ll now go back in the warm room to dry. The only thing left to do to it will be to give it a light buff and wax polish, which I’ll do at the same time I’m finishing off the top.
