I've recently refinished my stock, started with boiled linseed. It made the stock super dark and it covered up a lot of the grain...

I tried tru oil (which is linseed oil mixed with stuff) and liked the shine but it went tacky really quick, it was polymerizing way before I felt I was done rubbing it in.

I ended up mixing tru oil and boiled linseed oil together (80% tru, 20% BLO) it stopped it going too tacky too quickly and did not seem to make the wood dark.
My silence is not weakness, but the beginning of my revenge.
