I got some Pine tar and am wanting to strip my Birchwood 336 furniture and apply it.
Have any of you done this? I hate the fact that every little bump or scrape shows a white spot after the slightest damage.
From what I've seen, Pine tar cut with Linseed oil and/or Turpentine heated into the wood with flame takes out any dents or scratches and allows simple easy fixes in the future.
If you've a Birchwood stocked 336 and have done this, how did it turn out? Any pix?

I like my birch stock on my Glenfield. Never had the white spot problem. The old finish was peeling off when I got it but I just striped it and refinished it like it was to start with.

Strip the old finish off, steam out any dents and sand with 220 grit paper. Get dye and stain the wood. Put on tru oil finish.

This is my Glenfield that I refinished a number of years ago. I looks better than the picture as it is a little lighter then the picture shows it.
