Applying 7 Coats of Danish Oil | The Painfully Slow Way

Applying 7 Coats of Danish Oil | The Painfully Slow Way


[Music]
welcome back to clean Phil wanted it I’m Phil this is my workshop again that is
my abstract art the pieces of a corner cabinet I’ll show you the actual picture
of it right here if you look at the molding at the top and the bottom of
that corner cabinet that’s the molding that we made here by hand a few weeks
ago it actually turned out really really good what’s going on right here is
they’re hanging up on a 2×4 as a drying rack and a drying they have Danish oil
on them I did it a method of what I think it’s the wet on dry method so you
paint it on allow to dry for a day lightly sanded with like a 240 grit
paper and then apply another coat at least three times whenever you’re done
and happy with it after that you let it rest for 48 hours these are a little
over 24 hours into that 48 hours they have about seven coats on them now I did
not film the last two coats because quite frankly it’s the same thing over
and over again tips what you don’t want happening is contaminating the main
container you pour a little bit into a secondary container and you work from
that I didn’t think that was really gonna be a problem but when I looked at
that secondary container at the end of the first and second day there was
actually a lot more in there than I thought there was gonna be I did use a
brush the first time because I wanted it to go on very very thick subsequent
coats were put on with a rag I did sand in between each one with 240 grit paper
if your sandpaper gums up at all it just stopped because it means the finish is
not dry enough yet give it a couple more hours come out and then try it again [Music] [Music]
not too much longer gets into the park [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music]
sometimes go with uh gotta get in the coat [Music] good morning
[Music] [Music] it actually looks [Music] you won’t be seeing that very often on
the show I don’t have a biscuit joiner back in my storage unit so you won’t be
seeing this very often ever they are very very good at helping to line things
up that said this is just supposed to be really a rebate joint if I was doing it
on the show it’d be rebate if I was doing a for an actual kitchen that I was
making they’d probably be pocket holes I’ve never used a biscuit joiner before
and it’s actually it’s worked out pretty well this is a felt from an old pool
table it was replaced so actually very nice smoke-free [Music] [Applause]
[Music] actually it looks really good that
finish actually turned out really nice it’s a nice satin very even satin finish
so I’m actually okay with it there is a second method where it’s called the
wet-on-wet technique with Danish Oil you paint it on wipe it on wait about 20 to
30 minutes apply a second coat 20 to 30 minutes third coat as many times as
you’d like at least three coats at that point when you’re done you wait 48 hours
the same process if I do this again I will be following that method because
this is just taking two too long one thing I do really like about it is sight
it actually smells like a workshop in here now that stink makes it smell right
I hope you guys enjoyed this one next week I’m going to try to start using the
wood that’s over on this side I think you can see it and we’re gonna try to
start making an actual cabinet and I send it away all my mark so technically
the molding that’s on the top is supposed to be down here the whole box
is upside down
