I'm refinishing a Marlin 1994 that needed some reshaping to get a better fit to the receiver. That part of the project went well but my second coat of BLO has been wet for two days now. I applied a light hand rubbed layer on Sunday night and checked it tonight after work and it's not even tacky yet. This is my first attempt at a BLO finish so what am I doing wrong?
Yes, I used a stripper, reshaped the wood and sanded to remove tool marks and finished with a coat of walnut stain. I removed the the tacky finish with MS last night and I'm going to start again this weekend. I will not be using BOL. ???
