Today was my first time using boiled linseed oil and I'm very pleased with how easy and forgiving it is. I stripped the factory finish off a new shotgun, this was a bit nerve racking because I could potentially ruin a new gun, but in order to properly fit a recoil pad I had to try it. I'm really happy and relieved with how well it looks after just one coat. I'll save the pics for when it's completely finished. I plan to do 4 more coats, one per day till Thursday, and reassemble it Friday night. The instructions said to cut the boiled linseed oil with thinner so it penetrates. I used denatured alcohol and it worked really well. For you guys that have used boiled linseed oil, did you do anything special between coats? Should I sand or just apply the next coat? Pics of your finished stocks would be great!
