The beauty of oiled, matte-finished wood.
All you do is mask surrounding areas of fiberglass so they won’t get stained, apply a coat of #1 Matte, and allow time for it to soak into the wood. It will only take about 15 minutes between the first two coats, but each coat takes a bit longer. I got four coats on Buddy’s wood today. Since it’s still cool outside, I wanted some time for it to sit in the sun and dry. After the last coat, you would wait for it to be pretty well absorbed, then take a rag with a little Deks Olje on it, and wipe all the surfaces. That removes any excess that may not have been fully absorbed, and removes any runs or heavy spots, and voila, you’re done. You now have wood that will hold a beautiful, golden, honey finish for months.
