I refinished a softwood tabletop using Minwax Red Oak 215 stain and Circa 1850 Antique Danish Oil. I've waited over 6 months and the oil is still sticky/tacky! We're talking post-it note levels. I could probably hang this thing on the wall without fasteners. It's still giving off plenty of odour as well! What can I do to get this stuff to cure/harden and finish off-gassing?
I did one other project using the same finishing oil, but it was on bare wood; no stain involved. That one cured in about a month or two and ended up a really lovely finish with a semi-gloss look.
Is there something about the stain that is interfering with the oil?
