I'm refinishing an old spinning wheel and have one coat of Danish Oil on the wheel.
I NEED the whole thing finished and assembled by saturday morning and was hoping to get three coats of oil on it in total.
Is it possible to do two coats of oil in one day? I'd planned to leave 24 hours to dry/cure before sanding lightly and adding each coat but it was raining yesterday (and I have to work outside due to space constraints) so I let inconvenience and laziness get the better of me and took a nap instead.
So, as far as I can see, my options are:
- do one coat tonight and be happy with two coats.
- do two coats tonight (one as soon as I get home and another immediately before I head to bed?)
- do one coat tonight and one coat tomorrow and assemble the wheel a few hours later.
What is the minimum time required for each coat to cure/dry enough to put the next layer on? I REALLY want to avoid it getting tacky as I have heard that can be a problem with danish oil done badly.
FWIW, I'm using the specific product "Watco".
