I've made some shelving out of scaffold boards and I was initially planning on a light, natural finish. After one application of boiled linseed oil (BLO) I changed my mind and now I want to go dark. It's been about 10 days since I applied the BLO.
I've got some Briwax (Jacobean colour) here so I'm hoping I can just start applying this over the BLO.
Is this a bad idea? Will the BLO alter the finish? If so should I sand the wood in an attempt to remove the BLO? Or should I accept my mistake and stick with the light finish?
