Refinishing dresser with tung oil for a friend with cancer
scpeterson63November 5, 2013
I am giving an old oak dresser a face lift for my best friend who has cancer. After stripping the dresser, I am thinking of finishing it with tung oil because I want to see the wood grain and leave it as natural as possible. She wants it to look rustic. Any suggestions, recommendations, or ideas? Also, which form of tung oil is best... pure or heat-treated/polymerized form? I'm also looking for inexpensive rustic handles. Where's a good place to look?
