ok, i notice you guys always say "PURE tung oil" i went to home depot and got Minwax tung oil ( doesnt say pure ) from another store, Ace hardware, i got Boiled Linseed Oil. IIRC it is generic / in an ACE hardware can. which do i use, and which do i return?? i dont want to make the stock any darker than it currently is. i looked at that "Howards feed and wax" and it seems that its more of an ...Linseed oil is a flax derivative used to treat wood, either alone or as part of varnishes, paints, and stains. "Boiled" linseed oil is actually something of a misnomer; it is in fact pressed linseed oil to which chemical dryers have been added to speed up the drying process. This is necessary, since ...Yodrak nakrob
“GB” Lin-Speed Oil is not only great for finishing gun stocks but many fine guitar makers have discovered how well Lin-Speed Finish Oil works on their musical creations. And, apply “GB” Lin-Speed Oil to knife handles (it can withstand many trips through the dishwasher before re-coating), tool handles, bar tops, table tops, and furniture.
I have used boiled linseed oil to refinish two different gun stocks and also to protect hand-made hammer handles that I carved out of oak. I can verify that the wood continues to darken and will likely obscure the grain. I like that it's a natural material and it's easy to apply more at a later date, if needed.

And you can put Tru-oil over a BTO or BLO finish. To make boiled linseed oil, metal salts are added. They cause the oil to dry faster. While these render boiled linseed oil inedible, you'd have to consume a decent amount before it would be toxic. However, once the oil is dry, the metals are trapped in the film, making it perfectly safe for use on furniture.
So as far as finishes go it's pretty simple and completely up to you. There's Tru Oil which is mainly boiled linseed oil (BLO) that's been heated and treated with dryers and polymers. There's BLO which is the correct finish for most military rifles. Shellac which is used on alot of Russian Mosin rifles. And my least favorite, polyurethane.
